Trudy Keeping
ABE Graduate
I recently received my diploma from the Adult Basic Education (ABE) program at Keyin College. I dropped out of high school for personal reasons and always wanted to go back, but felt that it was too late. So, after 23 years I realized that it was my time to shine. It was also a dream of my mom's, that I graduate high school, and it was a very proud moment for me to show her my diploma. Now that I have completed the ABE program, I can move on to the next step, the Personal Care Attendant program, also at Keyin College. I learned a lot, but most important no matter how old you are it's never too late. Thank you to the instructors and staff at Keyin College.

Administrative Assistant | Horwood's Home & Community Support Services Inc.
I graduated from Keyin College Grand Falls Windsor campus in 2014 from the Office Administration Program. Overwhelmed was one of the many words to describe my initial feeling when I was returning to College after being out of school for over 10 years. The instructors at Keyin College made me feel so comfortable there that the overwhelming feeling left. I was always called by my name and never a number. I had so much guidance and support from the instructors which made me want to succeed in everything that I did. Today, all the help and skills that I received from this program has given me great success in the work force.

HSE Lead – Surmont Project | The Cahill Group | Western Canada
After spending 15 years in the construction industry, I realized it was time for a career change. I remember driving by the local Keyin Campus and noticing the Occupational Health and Safety Program highlighted on the billboard and my professional career changed from that point on. The next 88 weeks at Keyin put me on a new path which has changed my life completely. The OHS program and its’ instructors were a wealth of knowledge which I continue to use today as a HSE Professional in the Construction / Oil and Gas Industries.

Harry Wiseman
OHS Graduate
I recently graduated from the Occupational Health and Safety program at Keyin College’s Grand Falls-Windsor campus. There were several things that struck me as being exceptional at the Grand Falls-Windsor campus. The administration was very approachable and open to all reasonable requests and suggestions. They take a genuine interest in the success of their students. For the OHS courses beyond the first semester there is an emphasis on assignments for a large portion of the value of the courses. They ensure an in-depth and comprehensive knowledge of the material covered. This practical application of the subject matter provides experience that will help the graduate transition into a career in the safety field. During my work term, several topics came up that I had a good foundation of knowledge about due to completing those term assignments. Enrol and let Keyin unlock your future.

Funeral Director & Embalmer Graduate
During my senior year of high school, I decided that I wanted to pursue funeral service as a career. All I had to do was pick a college. With all the research I did on the different colleges and programs offered throughout Canada, I picked Keyin College in Grand Falls-Windsor, Newfoundland for a variety of reasons: location, curriculum, and hands-on training. After my graduation in 2015, I have to say that I was far from disappointed. All the staff there are extremely helpful, and I received an amazing education that really helped to prepare me for a career in the funeral service industry. I am now working as an apprentice with Arbor Memorial in Edmonton, Alberta, and thanks to my excellent education and training at Keyin College, I have already started making a name for myself as an up-and-coming decedent care specialist. Keyin College does an exemplary job of taking care of its students and preparing them to join the workforce.

In 2008 I graduated from the Keyin College Pharmacy Technician Program and have been successfully employed within my profession ever since. I can tell you that without a doubt this college offers its students a curriculum that assists them in developing the skills and knowledge needed to enter the workforce and to be confident and capable of doing their job. They also treat their students like they are a part of a family, not just another student. So if you are wondering where the best place to attend college is, it's definitely Keyin College.

OHS | CBU Graduate
I completed the Occupation Health and Safety Program at Keyin College and then continued my studies with Cape Breton University. I now have a diploma in OHS and a degree in Public Health. The agreement between the two institutions required me to only spend one year at CBU. Both have put me on the path of a fantastic career as a Public Health Inspector. It is a great opportunity that I would highly recommend as it opens the doors to so many opportunities.

Travel Consultant | Legrow's Travel
Keyin College is, by far, one of the best decisions I have made with regard to higher education. The Travel and Tourism program is well designed to apply to all areas of travel, including working with airlines, hotels, or like me - Travel Agency work. I feel like it's not as popular a program because people don't know how many applications it can have in the workforce, but there are so many different things you can do with this program. I also appreciated all the work of the staff at Keyin to help me land a work term that I both loved, and turned into full-time employment. If you're a high school student, don't put aside Keyin College - look at their programs and really consider it...you won't regret it!

OHS Graduate
Completing Keyin College's Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety gave me the confidence that I would need to have in the work world. Although I had previous experience in Health and Safety from the field level, this course provided me the theory and education to pair with my technical skills. Keyin College's instructors were professional and related their experience in a way that made the course more enjoyable. Because of my time at Keyin, I feel that I am better prepared today for the career that I have in Health and Safety. Anyone interested in a career in health and safety, should look no further than Keyin College for their studies. I will always take pride in my time at Keyin and look to return frequently to help out wherever I can."

From beginning to end, I loved my program. The teachers and staff at Keyin College are great people. They will do anything for you to help you be the best that you can be! I graduated a few months ago and I miss being there. From the first day that I walked through the doors of Keyin College everyone was so inviting and welcoming. They take the time to help you understand every task at hand and even offered help after classes for those who needed it. Every day was a great experience for me, the teachers are very well educated in their field and they want you to know and learn everything that they know and more!!

Primary Care Paramedic
I graduated from the Primary Care Paramedic program at Keyin College in Grand Falls-Windsor in February 2014. I had multiple job offers before I even received my diploma. I now work full time with a hospital based Ambulance service in central Newfoundland. Keyin College offered just the right combination of theory and practical training to allow me to enter the work force as a confident professional. The knowledge of the training staff was second to none and several weeks of on-the-job training with the best Paramedics in the industry prepared me for my own career. I had always dreamed of a career in health care, Keyin College helped me realize how realistic that dream really was.

Keyin College provided me with an opportunity to get into the job market at a time when jobs were difficult to come by.

Roger Robinson
Roger Robinson
Station Manager | Rogers Television, Gander
I was involved in business in one form or another most of my adult life but did not have the diploma to show what I was capable of. I was in my late 30’s and although college presented its own set of challenges, Keyin had a great atmosphere for learning and a strong supportive teaching staff which enabled me to complete the 16 month Business Management program and graduate at the top of my class. In hindsight, I now realize how important going back to school was. Taking that step was truly the turning point in my life and it has given me the much needed knowledge and confidence to succeed.” If there is a message I would like to pass on to those considering going back to school, choose Keyin College, determine to succeed and get involved in your community.
