The Registered Co-Op

Pacific Coast Community College delivers the only Health Care curriculum with a monitored co-op module registered with the province of British Columbia career college regulatory authority, the Private Career Training Institutions Agency (of BC) - PCTIA.


In BC, private career training is regulated. Any institution offering a career training program with tuition of $1,000 or more and 40 hours or more in duration is required to register and adhere to basic education standards.  The registrations includes filing all programs of study with PCTIA.  All programs are reviewed and scrutinized for industry relevence, curriculum integrity and outcomes.


Monitored Co-Op Placement:

This monitored work experience is integral to the program of study.  It provides the student with real-life exposure to workplace settings and to not only put into practice, but master the provision of care, assisting clients and communication with clients, families, and other health care team members that the student learned during the HCA certification module with the goal of achieving the requisite hours and industry reference required to progress into the Acute Care Skills module.


A dedicated Pacific Coast placement manager and proctor are assigned to you for the duration of your program which means your Co-Op work experience can be 100% validated in terms of qualifying for Acute Care Skills certification and public hospital Acute Care ward clinical practicum as required by the Provincial Health Authority.

  • Your proctor monitors and documents your performance with your supervisor throughout your Co-Op

Approved BC Health Authority Co-Op Placement:
