Personal Support and Child Care Diploma (PSW)

Distance learning for International Students

Since, by definition, distance learning does not require one to be in Canada or on Campus Education, a study permit cannot be issued for this type of course. For example, if a foreign national authorized to work in Canada is prohibited from engaging in studies as per a condition of their work permit, they are allowed to engage in distance learning courses.

​Occupation(s) toward which the program is directed

Personal and Social Services, ​

Our PSW program does not have off-campus practicum requirements; instead, such activity is assessed via campus practicum/assignments or video if the delivery method is online.

Those who thrive in this career are the ones who have:

  • Good judgment
  • A keen eye for detail
  • Self-discipline
  • An appreciation of Canada’s rich cultural diversity
  • Enjoyment working in different geographic locations in Canada or outside Canada.

A few important scenarios for your consideration:

The Past Course-Program Credits

  • If you have already completed similar subjects in a different course, you can register for this program, and C.C.E.C. may allow some credits toward some courses are taken from C.C.E.C. or other designated similar program providers, helping you not only save on tuition fees but also time.

Foreign Nationals

  • For international visitors or temporary residents in Canada, this program requires a study visa or study permit because it is more than a six-month study period and, as per IRCC regulations/policy, does require a study permit or visa. If interested, we can assist you with questions from A-Z.

  • If you are currently in Canada either visiting or on a temporary resident permit status; or under a bridging open work permit program waiting for a final decision on your PR application, or you have already submitted your PR application and are waiting for a final decision; you may take this course to learn the advanced-level skills. Once you have PR status, start your career matching this program without wasting time, ready to play your part in the Canadian economy.
