RRC COVID-19 Testing Micro-Credential Course

October 9, 2020

Red River College is dedicating its expertise and resources to help increase the COVID-19 testing capacity for Manitoba Public Health.

RRC will open registration early next week for a new micro-credential course designed to train a number of health-care professionals and health-care students to safely administer a nasal swab to test for the virus.

Micro-credential courses allow students to gain practical skills in a short period of time. The COVID-19 testing course will be offered tuition-free through blended online and hands-on delivery, and includes an essential online theory module and hands-on clinical training.

More information, including eligible professions, course dates, and how to register will be made available early next week. Once more information is available we will update our website.
