I learned a lot of new things in the Medication Administration Course, and I believe it gave me an edge and greater sense of confidence when I recently applied for a job. The employer was very pleased to learn that I was already certified in administering medications.

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.”

Success Story

I chose Drake Medox not only as the waiting period was shorter compared to other colleges but it was recommended to me by some of my friends. I am already huge advocate of Drake Medox College, not for the referral benefits but because of the good quality and hands-on teaching environment that I had experienced during my time as a student. I am now more confident in applying all that I've learnt to my current role and have Drake Medox to thank for that.
