About Us

WELCOME TO YOUR NEW CAREER AS A HEALTH OR SOCIAL SERVICE PROFESSIONAL!

Drake Medox College was created from the growing demand of health care employers (like our sister company Drake Medox Health Services) for Health Care Assistants to meet the needs of clients/residents not only in the facility sector but also in the home support and private home care sectors. Today there continues to emerge even greater demand to meet the needs of our aging population and aging workforce in either multilevel care environments or in their own homes. Since our inception we have gone on to develop Community Support Worker and Activity Assistant Diploma Programs.

The only programs we offer are health and social service related programs. You will benefit from the fact that our entire focus is specialized and our curriculums are backed by over 40 years of experience in the health and social service industries. Our vast connections with Employers, Health Authorities as well as regulatory bodies ensure our curriculums are updated as trends and policies within the industry change.

At Drake Medox College we offer some of the most student focused study options for program delivery and support available in the industry. Combined Delivery of online plus in- class studies or in-class only options are available. Classes are available Saturdays or Sundays, evenings or weekdays; you decide what works for your schedule. Our Support team is ready to serve you 6 days a week at both our Surrey and Vancouver Campuses.

EMPLOYER TESTIMONIAL

We highly regard Community Support Work related schooling/credentials when making hiring decisions. The schooling indicates to us that applicants have some systematic training in the field and are passionate about quality care; this means they are likely to be high performers and stay longer because they fully understand what the job involves. Retention is a huge consideration, those that are likely to stay longer will always be highly sought after as it takes time to build working relationships and relationships with person served.

As you probably are aware by now, most of my recent hires are from your college, and I am very happy with the performance and work ethics of your graduates. They are very responsive, caring and have a solid knowledge by the time they enter the workforce.

Kudos to you and to your organization.

With much respect,

Drake Medox College has provided me with the greatest opportunity through their Community Support Worker program, with being able 'pay it forward ' and make a difference in this world. Life is about touching the lives of people around us no matter who they are or where they have come from.
