Thompson Rivers University’s Barriere office has a full slate of courses available for those wishing to further their education. One of the more popular courses, and one that only becomes available every few years, is the Health Care Assistant Program. This program was previously called the Home Support Resident Care program. It is a 24 week course and only becomes available every four years. This course will be starting on October 24.
There are three new instructors teaching courses this year. Stephen Whitred is hoping to make the computer and internet experience a lot more fun and productive for his students in the computing course. Tammy York is excited to meet new people and teach classes in fitness as the new fitness course instructor. Lynne Nordquist loves working with clay, finding it a wonderfully satisfying medium to learn and to work in; she will be the new pottery instructor.
Other popular courses are the FoodSafe Level 1 course which starts on October 15, and the Joy of Painting taught by local artist Bob Stirling.
