How long will it take to complete the program?

Trainees can complete the program at their own pace.

  • Curriculum (Online training): Curriculum is 144 hours of training and is completed in two phases (each 72 hours). Phase 1 will take at least 6 weeks to complete, but trainees can choose to take a more leisurely pace that suits their schedule. Phase 2 can also be completed in about 6 weeks if trainees complete about 12 hours/week, but many trainees do not have that much time to devote to the program, so it may take longer. Overall, it will take about 3-6 months to complete the online training.
  • On the job learning: On the job learning allows the trainee to practice the skills. Trainees can complete Phase 2 concurrently with the on the job learning but have to count the hours separately. There are two ways to complete the on the job learning. If trainees complete the field placement, it will take approximately 6-12 weeks. Trainees who choose apprenticeship will complete the program in 1-2 years (2000 hours).
