Sometimes the best resource is to hear about an individual's personal experience with a program. Netty transitioned from a career in retail and joined the Unit Clerk program at ABES College. Her time in the program and experience gained during her practicum helped her secure a great position working at the Children's Hospital.

Netty's contributions at the hospital means that day to day operations run smoothly, and that every heath care professional in her unit is able to provide top notch care to young patients.

Netty is making a difference with her Unit Clerk + Medical Office assistant education; we cant wait to see what you can do with yours!


ABES is a small, privately owned school that provides not only traditional instruction but also places a priority on hands-on training. This means that in addition to learning in our labs, students will complete a practicum in the Calgary area. Employers look for students with hands-on skills, and our students are often hired during their Practicum experience. 

Additionally, ABES has a long history of partnering with the medical community and this is of great assistance in offering employment opportunities to our graduates.

Finally, ABES offers career placement services to our students so that they may enter the workforce as soon as possible after completing the program.
