ASCHA Activity Coordinator
Who should take this program?
Responding to the demand of the senior housing sector, the Alberta Senior Citizens Housing Association has worked with RDC since 1996 to develop and deliver a specialized certificate program for Activity Coordinators.
Designed for individuals with an interest in gaining knowledge and understanding of this unique industry and wanting to work in recreation and activities in seniors' housing, this program is excellent in orientating individuals to the field of leadership, effectively handling communication and conflict whilst maintaining client satisfaction within the parameters of aging processes. Our program has an in-class component to assist you to develop your skills in personal and professional development, understanding the principles of recreation and leisure, program development and older adult certification.
