Everest students resume classes thanks to collaboration between Cambrian and Confederation Colleges

Posted on Friday May 8, 2015

SUDBURY — Nine students who were enrolled in Everest College’s Medical Laboratory Assistant program in Sudbury have resumed their studies, using facilities at Cambrian College and approved curriculum from Confederation College.

“We are pleased to be part of the solution for these students,” said Dan Draper, Dean of Cambrian College’s School of Health Sciences and Emergency Services. “Students are picking up where they left off; They are being taught by the same professors who were employed by Everest, using Ministry-approved curriculum from Confederation College. It is a different physical environment, but we are pleased to offer our facilities when they are not in use by our own students and faculty.”

Classes for the former Everest students and professors resumed Monday, May 4 at Cambrian.

Confederation College offers a one-year Medical Laboratory Assistant program, and Cambrian offers a three-year Medical Laboratory Technology advanced diploma program. Cambrian submitted a proposal in March to the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities to assist displaced Everest students. The Ministry agreed that Cambrian possessed the required equipment and facilities, and Confederation had the appropriate license to offer the program, enabling the affected students to move ahead with their training and future careers.
