ABES Prepares You for Employment
Graduates of this comprehensive Alberta Business & Educational Services (ABES) program will write the International Association of Healthcare Central Service Material Management (IAHCSMM) examination. Success in this exam is now a pre-requisite to employment as a Medical Device Reprocessing Technician in Alberta, and ABES remains the only educational institution in Alberta to include the IAHCSMM designation during training.
All staff working in Medical Device Reprocessing must be certified prior to April 2015; and our teachers and staff are best-equipped to prepare students for the examination.
Can I Qualify for Financial Aid?
Many applicants—such as those with children, those who didn’t work last year, and those who recently arrived in Canada—will qualify for free grants automatically, and even those with a high income will usually qualify for some aid.
In short: if you’re worried about the cost of the program, schedule a time to chat with an Admissions Advisor. They can help give you a better idea of how much financial aid you will qualify for.
What Makes ABES Different from Other Schools?
- As a small, privately owned school, ABES guarantees hands-on training for every student.
- Unlike other schools, all our programs offer practicum in the Calgary area—making it easier for you to stay local. (Many students get their first job offer while they’re still on practicum)
- Finally, we stand out for our extensive connections in the medical community. Thanks to our relationships with local healthcare facilities, our graduates have an easy road to employment.
