See below for testimonials of past participants of the program.

"The Earn While You Learn program at Saskatoon Business College was a very positive program to be involved in. The classes were all relevant to the job that it was preparing me for. I loved that I was able to get field experience while I was still in the program because it solidified my decision to remain in the health care field. The practicum experience in both home care and long term care showed me the variety that I could have as a continuing care aide which was very important to me. I was able to build stronger relationships with my classmates while we faced challenges in the work field together, and then had the opportunity to apply our classroom knowledge to our situations. I would recommend this program to people that are
hands-on learners with a proactive personality."

"Being in this program helps me to learn and earn at the same time.  I chose this career because I love that my job challenges me every day in different ways and it's a great way to build your skills and your confidence."
