Trent Centre for Aging & Society

Professional Certificate Program

We are currently developing a new Continuing Education Professional Certificate Program, which will be open to both working professionals (i.e. Nurses, Police Officers, Human Resource workers, etc.) and graduates alike. For example, we have joined forces with Elder Abuse Ontario to develop a Certificate in Elder Abuse Awareness and Prevention, something we expect will make a tangible difference in the lives of seniors.


Foundations of Elder Abuse Education and Prevention

In fall 2018, an introductory level, non-credit course based on Elder Abuse Ontario's Core Curriculum will be presented in partnership with the Trent Centre for Aging & Society & Elder Abuse Ontario. The course is suitable for professionals that work with or plan to work with seniors in community or care settings (e.g. social workers, nurses, PSWs, and occupational therapists). There are no prerequisites nor required texts. Learn more here.
