A few words from our learners

“One of my biggest regrets in life was never graduating high school. So, when my employment closed, I decided to attend Tri-County Literacy Council programming which got me on the road to success. I saw how the province was in dire need of PSWs. They were offering the (PSW) program for free (that’s an $8000 to $15000 course). For those that did not have a high school diploma, there was a two-part entrance exam So, I decided to give it a try. I used the skills I had learned at Tri-County Literacy Council. The first part of the exam was a math test, the second was written. I passed and was accepted into the program. I am just about finished my program and on my way to receiving my PSW certificate. I’m employed at a long term care home as a PSW student, while continuing my course. This long term care home has employed me full-time providing I receive my certificate. So, if you’re thinking of it, do it! Best decision I ever made!”

“The services I have received are highly appreciated. Not everyone is able to get more skills by spending money. But, this fantastic agency provides a lot more to the general public. I love the staff and the volunteers. They are always ready to help. People have easy access to all services. I will try to tell about this institute to as many friends as I have. Thank you so much for the wonderful services.”

“Tri-County Literacy Council offers a comfortable environment to help you learn at your own pace. The instruction is clear and simple with markable progress. I highly recommend this to anyone. The training helped me by setting a goal path for me to follow. I could have done this at home, but having someone to answer my questions and get me additional work on topics I was having challenges with very much sped up my progress. Thank you.”
