The SSW program at Humber College was everything I expected it to be and more. I have learned that it is never too late to start over and make your dreams come true.
For as long as I can remember my dream was to become a Police Officer- but I always knew it was going to take a lot of hard work and a competitive education.
I always knew that having just a Bachelor’s in Psychology degree will not help me stand out from other fellow graduates.
As I navigated my way through the Psychosocial Rehabilitation Certificate program, I began to see a whole new way of working unfold. Recovery based, person centred; as a staff in the mental health field I do not need to know all the answers.
My name is Kevin Gonneau and I am a recent Grad from the Police Foundations Program at Humber College. I am also pleased to have received a job from Humber College days after finishing my last class.
My experience with the FSW program was exceptional! This program offered me the flexibility to complete the certificate at my own pace.
To me success means being able to achieve goals and targets that one sets for themselves with hard work, self confidence and consistent effort.
My experience at Humber College is irreplaceable.
I started the Settlement Services program in May 2010 and completed in June 2012, in total 11 courses and with good results, around 85%. I enjoyed a lot all the program and learned a lot of skills.
As soon as I finished the Humber Behavioural Science program, I had an opportunity in Vancouver to work for one of their school district; as an Autism Support Worker. Within half a year I switched positions to working as a Behavioural Support Worker.
Getting my Ontario Graduate Certificate in Forensic Practice from Humber College was a life-changer for me. The courses were packed full of great information, and the teachers were so amazing that you never wanted to miss a class.
The Humber College Border and Immigration Services Certificate program has provided me with a solid foundation of knowledge needed to start my career as a Border Services Officer (BSO).
In April 2015, after 32 years with the Toronto Police Service (TPS), Mark Saunders was appointed Chief of Police, making history as the first black officer to lead the largest municipal police service in Canada.
I loved the time I spent at Humber College studying Municipal By-Law Enforcement. I was on parental leave when my son Ryan was born in 2004, and I decided to utilize the evening free time when my wife used to take care of the kids.
