Disability and Community Rehabilitation
Turn your caring attitude into a career
Help make the lives of others better with our Disability and Community Rehabilitation program. This one-year certificate (or two-year diploma) will mark the beginning of your career as a Disability Service professional, where you’ll impact the lives of children, adults, families and communities every day. You’ll learn to support people with a variety of challenges, and help them participate in community living.
Disability and Community Rehabilitation is right for you if you:
- have empathy and respect for other people
- possess a positive attitude and persistence
- have good communication skills, including well-developed listening skills
- motivate people
- have good organizational skills
- are able to work independently or as part of a team.
Make a difference
We’ll ensure you have all the skills necessary to be a vital part of this industry with our work-based practicum courses. You will learn to support people with developmental disabilities in respectful ways and be knowledgeable in values including empowerment, self-determination and advocacy. You can also choose to continue your education with a second year of studies to graduate with a Disability and Community Rehabilitation diploma.
PRACTICUM EXPERIENCE REQUIREMENTS
There is a required practicum component to this program. The College dictates the legal terms and conditions governing the practicum experience. Failure by the student to accept by way of legal contract and abide by these terms and conditions will result in non-completion of the program.
Applicants are advised they will be required to provide a current Criminal Record Check before entering the first practicum course of the program. Depending on the placement location, students may also be required to obtain an Alberta Children’s Services Intervention Record Check. Students are responsible for the costs associated with these requirements. Failure to present a current Criminal Record Check or other documents may result in a practicum placement being unavailable to the student. The existence of a criminal record may affect practicum placements, program completion and employment prospects. The consequences of a prior criminal conviction will be examined and discussed on an individual basis.
