The nine-week program is comprised of three weeks of classroom training in infection control three days per week, followed by six weeks of on-site training at BMH.

Students can work up to 20 hours per week.

In the program’s first graduating class, nine students were awarded their certificate and eight accepted employment at the hospital.
