I believe taking the CPSW course gave me opportunities to excel, not only within my studies, but within my workplace as well. Being in the comfort of my own home let me take my time to read over the materials given, as well as challenge myself if I didn’t know something right away. I would read it over or do more research until I understood. I feel this was very helpful as everyone learns in their own way. If I needed extra help I did have the option of contacting CCS, and there was always help and explanations in a way that was so calming, it made you want to study harder and more.
Being a mother of two small children, taking this course gave me the opportunity to still be involved with family, work a full-time job in health care, and study for my CPSW in between. Family is very important to me, so having the option to be around them, and not sitting in a classroom, was something I enjoyed about the program. It also helped show my oldest daughter that you can achieve anything you put your mind too. One of my favorite things was reading the text books to her. She didn’t understand it all as she is only five, but she now knows some names of the muscular system, and can name some bones. There is no greater joy than being able teach your children something while you are still learning yourself.
Within my work place this course gave me the confidence to do my job well and to the fullest extent. Having the anatomy and physiology part in the CPSW course made it easier in my job to understand the clients and their needs. I found I wanted to challenge myself and learn as much as I could. I took on the role as a UCP (unregulated care provider) in my work place and passed the training with a 93% average. I feel this wouldn’t have been possible if I didn’t have the anatomy and physiology.
The CPSW course is in great depth and offers more than the PSW course, as that one doesn’t have the anatomy and physiology part. This part in the course was the hardest but most rewarding as it teaches you about our bodies. As a health care provider, and in life in general I feel this is very important information to know.
My overall experience taking the CPSW was amazing and I would recommend this program to everyone who is looking to be a part of the health care team.
