Educational Assistant Certificate

The Childhood Studies department offers a full-time, ten month Educational Assistant Certificate program. Part-time study is also available through evening classes, online application and day classes when space allows.

To learn more about the program, applicants are strongly recommended to call or meet with the department chair.

Attending school can be a great adventure for many children; however for others it can be a difficult experience. You can play a key role in breaking down the barriers of learning for these children by enrolling in Keyano College's 10-month Educational Assistant Certificate program. This hands-on program focuses on preparing students for employment with schools or community programs where they will work with children with special needs.
