Health-care aide students made up 80 per cent of the graduates from Robertson College at Friday’s graduation ceremony.

The institution will see 87 students receive their diplomas this year.

"Last year, we had 105 graduates, but enrolment changes from year to year because we are a small private college," campus director Amy Kilburn said.

Interest in the health-care aide and health-care aide challenge programs has perked up in the past few years, Kilburn said.

"Our health-care aide program is so in demand locally and even outside our Prairie Mountain Health region," she said. "Many of our students are securing positions by the end of their work practicum placements."

The health-care aide challenge is open to employees already working in the field, whose employers sign off on their hours.

The challenge is completed in 12 weeks rather than the standard 22-week program.

Other programs offered at Robertson’s Brandon campus include nursing assistant, pharmacy technician, legal and business assistants.

Robertson College was established in 1911 and Brandon’s campus boasts a 89 per cent post-grad employment rate.
