"The Therapist Assistant program seemed unique from all of the other courses in healthcare. From the first day of classes I knew I was in the right program. The teachers are genuinely passionate about the profession, and more and more health care professionals are becoming increasingly aware of what a Therapist Assistant has to offer. From working in mental health, to working with children or in a hospital setting, this course provided me with all of the skills I needed to really make a difference in people’s lives. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone that wishes to do the same. "

Raissa The Therapist Assistant Diploma Program has been a rewarding and worthwhile experience! This profession is so broad – it encompasses every age, and nearly every condition and disability. Three disciplines, numerous settings, and clients of all ages and conditions make for an endless spectrum of opportunity. Going to work every day is making a positive impact in somebody’s life. The contact and connection with clients is what I love about this career. It is a real way to help people enjoy life to the fullest.

 The Therapist Assistant Program prepared me for a rewarding career in health care. Throughout the two years in the program the classroom work, lab work and placements all were great learning tools filled with opportunities to grow and learn. One of my favorite parts of the program were the placements and the site visits, these were always the best learning experiences and I always took so much out of them.
