This certificate program consists of four compulsory courses and one elective. Flexibility of study is provided in that learners may complete the certificate in one or two years or simply take, upon acceptance to the program, the course(s) that best meet their current learning needs. Certificates are awarded upon completion of all five courses. This program is currently offered in-class, in the evenings.
This certificate focuses on client-directed approaches. Case managers act as a link between clients and services that best meet individual needs. Advocacy is a key area of this practice, and it is essential that case managers develop effective skills in accessing programs and services for marginalized persons using client-directed approaches. As such, the program is geared to those who are not currently case managers, but perform case management functions. The program is also intended to assist front-line staff in human service agencies in the mental health, long-term care, and developmental disabilities services systems to form collaborative relationships with clients. This program is also of interest to clients of human service agencies and families who wish to learn how to become their own case managers.
If more convenient for your agency or organization, Humber is pleased to deliver this program on-site where there are 20 or more who would like to take courses. A group information session can be arranged with a program representative to answer any questions you may have.
Applicants should have a degree or diploma in any health, human or social services discipline and/or work or applicable volunteer experience in a health, social services, corrections or human service capacity.
