Regional campus Simcoe
July 17, 2017

The Faculty of Regional and Continuing Education at Fanshawe College has announced the upcoming launch of three new highly-flexible, modular certificate programs.

Set to start in fall 2017 at the Simcoe/Norfolk Regional Campus, the new MyPath program offerings are designed for students seeking flexible, short-term, career-specific training options.

MyPath students may begin their studies approximately every six to eight weeks. Courses are offered as six-week learning modules. Students can complete one, two or three modules to earn laddered credentials toward one of three certificates:

  • Health Care Office Assistant
    Price for entire certificate is $3,751 (including books)
    Intakes: September 18, 2017; November 8, 2017; January 2, 2018; February 20, 2018
  • Food Service Worker
    Price for entire certificate is $1,802.90 (including books)
    Intakes: September 20, 2017; November 1, 2017; December 13, 2017; February 7, 2018
  • Project Management Specialist
    Price for entire certificate is $3,313.50 (including books)
    Complete one course per month
    Intakes: September 19, 2017; October 17, 2017; November 14, 2017; December 12, 2017; January 16, 2018; February 13, 2018; March 13, 2018

"We're excited to launch these new MyPath programs in response to the needs of people looking for flexible ways to get into the job market quickly," says Krista Zilkey, manager of continuing education and training services at the Simcoe/Norfolk Regional Campus. "We believe we're meeting those needs with reasonable all-in-one costs and personalized, concierge-level service to help students from their first interaction with the campus until the day they're career-ready."

Boasting affordable pricing and free parking on campus, the MyPath modular programs provide a new option for people trying to balance the desire for career-focused education with current job or family demands. Students can enter the MyPath programs with or without previous post-secondary experience, and will receive one-on-one support through the process, from registration to program completion. Applicants may also be eligible for a Continuing Education bursary.

The new MyPath program delivery method will also be offered at Fanshawe's Woodstock/Oxford Regional Campus and Huron/Bruce Regional Sites.
