Training continues to be a focus at New Age Services Inc. We encourage cross-departmental, lateral, technical and enhancement trainings. We support all our staff to acquire mandatory training in the following areas:
– Positive Behaviour Supports Training (also known as Restrictive Practices)
– Abuse Protocol
– Medication Administration
– First Aid and CPR
– Crisis Prevention & Intervention (CPI)
Staff without educational qualifications are supported to take Foundations Training (which is accepted as the minimal standard of education in the sector) either by attending an in-house classes or completing the course online.
We also provide workshops or training sessions on specific topics such as back care/lifting, mental health, behavioural management, suicide prevention, FAS, infectious diseases and many more.
We have also partnered with Bow Valley College to provide The Community Disabilities Studies Certificate Course to our staff at our office premises. The course is ongoing and meets the Work Force Job Classification requirements.
