In partnership with Calgary Laboratory Services (CLS), this full-time program prepares graduates for work in hospitals, patient service centers, and clinical laboratories. Alberta Business & Educational Services’ (ABES) Medical Lab Assistant course will help you become fully qualified.
Calgary Laboratory Services (CLS) Partnership
In 2004, CLS approached Alberta Business & Educational Services (ABES), and requested we run the Medical Lab Assistant program in Calgary in order to solve a shortage of MLAs in the industry. As a result of successfully addressing their issues, we have remained partners ever since. This relationship has been very advantageous for our students, because it allows our program to grow with the times, and to develop the most current techniques and skillsets necessary for success in the field.
Benefits of CLS Partnership
Our partnership with CLS for the Medical Lab Assistant program means that students have the opportunity to form a professional relationship with CLS—the largest employer for MLAs in Calgary and the surrounding areas. Our MLA students also receive these direct benefits:
Ongoing Support with ABES
Because of our close working relationship with CLS, graduates of this program are streamlined into the work force; 95% of Medical Lab assistant graduates from Alberta Business & Educational Services (ABES) are employed upon or before graduation. Although the majority of our grads work for CLS, our Calgary Medical Lab Assistant program does not limit you to this company.
Upon your request ABES will provide you with practicums outside of CLS. Many other employers hire our graduates.
By offering our students such a close laboratory relationship with the largest MLA employer in Calgary, we hope to ensure your ongoing success in the Medical Lab Assistant program whether you’re from Calgary, Edmonton, Lethbridge or beyond.
