New increased training program in the workplace for AEP in hygiene and sanitation in the Laurentians

The Integrated Health and Social Services Center (CISSS) des Laurentides is pleased to announce the creation a new work / study training program for the vocational studies certificate (AEP) in hygiene and sanitation which will allow students to be paid and to gain seniority during part of their studies .

This training program, set up in collaboration with school service centers in the Laurentian region, aims to respond to the significant lack of housekeeping attendants in all of the facilities serving the Laurentians population. The hygiene and sanitation attendant plays a decisive role in the prevention and control of infections, particularly during a pandemic. Our healthcare settings have a great need for people with the necessary qualifications to enable us to offer quality healthcare and service settings, ”said Rosemonde Landry, President and CEO of the CISSS des Laurentides.

This AEP, which lasts three months, allows students to learn the profession by alternating sequences in the classroom and in the workplace. In addition to promoting learning and making achievements concrete, this formula has the advantage of remunerating students during training periods taking place in the CISSS facilities, in addition to allowing them to accumulate seniority during their period of practical training.

Several cohorts will begin in the coming weeks in the following establishments: Center d’études professionnelle Saint-Jérôme, Center de formation professionnelle des Sommets, Center de formation professionnelle l’Émergence and Center de formation professionnelle de Mont-Laurier.
