A key priority of the College’s strategic direction is the health agenda. At the Schools of Health Sciences and Emergency Services, we provide you with great opportunities to become an important member of a health care or an emergency services team.
As a Cambrian student, you will learn to focus on healthy living as much as treating illness; you will learn to care for individuals by focusing on emergency, prevention, primary care, acute care and long-term care; and you will learn to meet individual and community needs around the clock, seven days a week. People choosing a career in health sciences and emergency services chose a lifelong commitment to the protection, the welfare, and well-being of individuals and their communities.
Our Schools offer programs in Nursing, Dental Care, Physical Fitness Management, Medical Laboratory Technology, Paramedic, Personal Support Worker, Practical Nursing, Pre-Service Firefighter Education and Training, Medical Radiation Technology, Ultrasound and Magnetic Resonance Imaging. Become a member of this interdisciplinary team; your role will be important in responding to the emergency and health needs of the public and your community.
We invite you to explore the opportunities for study in pursuit of employment in the many occupations relating to justice and community services. We also invite you to meet our professional faculty and staff who can assist you in achieving your goals. Please don’t hesitate to contact our department if you have any questions regarding our programs or services.

Take a trades program at Cambrian, and you’ll be in demand.
With a shortage of skilled tradespeople across Canada and around the world, it’s never been a better time to pursue a career in the trades.
No matter which program you choose, you’ll learn from experienced faculty in labs and shops where you’ll get the hands-on experience that is highly valued by employers. Depending on your program, you’ll also have opportunities to meet industry representatives and tour local facilities. See our programs below to start planning your future.
Co-op Diploma Apprenticeship Option
Cambrian also offers a Co-op Diploma Apprenticeship option for some of its trades programs. If you choose this option, you’ll complete all three levels of in-school apprenticeship training and co-op placements by the time you graduate. When you enter the workforce, you’ll only need to complete the requisite work hours for your trade to be eligible to write your exam to become a certified journeyperson.
