National Academy celebrated its 33rd anniversary as a Private Career College, one of Canada’s oldest and most trusted, while also accepting the Reader’s Choice Gold Award for Best Career School. This recognition is the latest in the history of a school that has been recognized for its outstanding education, personable and experienced staff & faculty and ample employment prospects for its graduates.
National Academy, with both a Mississauga and Hamilton campus, offers a range of specialized Diploma programs in Healthcare, Business and Law. Students enjoy hands-on, instructor-led training, blended with a rich history of a successful culture that gives its graduates a jump start into their career. Their recipe for success involves small classes, job placements and instructors with real-world experience. Within just a few minutes of visiting a National Academy campus, it’s evident that they are committed to your success and career goals. Unlike traditional educational institutions, National Academy focuses on applied learning. The student experience is interactive, intimate and accountable. Students are prepared for success throughout their program, known on a first name basis and guided towards success.
The university and college system focus on student volume, while National Academy is focused on student success. With class sizes under 20 (not 200) and hands-on training versus strictly theoretical, it is clear that National Academy sets a new benchmark in the education industry. “Our success is our students and the graduates that we prepare for employment” explains Mark Harrington, President of National Academy. “From our industry-low OSAP default rate (meaning that graduates get jobs and pay back their OSAP) to the experience that our faculty shares with our students in the classroom, we are proud of what we’ve built and the opportunities that our students and graduates have. The recognition of Best Career College is a tribute to our staff and students.” he adds. OSAP Defaults gauge the success of a school’s graduates through its ability to repay their student loans. In logic, a working graduate is able to repay their student loan without default. National Academy, for the 3rd year in a row, came in at 7.8% (92.2% re-payment) – significantly better than the average of all private career colleges (15.2%, 84.8% re-payment) and community colleges such as Sheridan College and Mohawk College (10.5% Default, 89.5% re-payment).
With innovative Diploma programs, including Medical Lab Technician, Intra-Oral Dental Assistant and Police Foundations, National Academy offers more than 15 Diploma programs in Healthcare, Business and Law.

National Academy of Health & Business, a leading career college with campuses in Mississauga and Hamilton, Ontario, was recently awarded the status of Qualifying Accreditation by the Canadian Council for Accreditation of Pharmacy Programs (‘CCAPP’). This means that National Academy Pharmacy Technician graduates (and only graduates from other CCAPP programs) are eligible to become registered Pharmacy Technicians in Ontario.
The accreditation status from CCAPP is the result of a tremendous amount work put in by several individuals including National Academy employees and many external advisors. National Academy has also made a significant financial investment into its facility and equipment so that the new Pharmacy Technician program now has its own dedicated state-of-the-art 500 square foot laboratory.
According to Workopolis and Service Canada, Pharmacy Technician and Assistants are expected to be one of the highest demand careers in Canada. This is likely due to Canada’s aging population leading to a continued demand for healthcare and related services. In addition, new regulations in Ontario have given Pharmacy Technicians more responsibility, such as the ability to verbally accept prescriptions; the authority to operate a pharmacy independently in remote and more. These factors should also contribute to the demand for and increased compensation of Pharmacy Technicians in Ontario.
National Academy will offer its first Pharmacy Technician program on January 30, 2012 at the College’s Mississauga campus. Enrollment will be limited so prospective students are urged to apply early. The accelerated diploma program takes place over 40 weeks (including 8 week hospital and retail pharmacy job placement). The college offers up to five funding options, including OSAP (to those who qualify), Second Career, interest free payment plans, loans, etc.
National Academy of Health & Business is a registered career college with campuses in Mississauga (905 273 6656) and Hamilton (905 521 9991). The college has been providing Healthcare, Business and Law Enforcement training since 1979.
National Academy is today celebrating its 33rd year as one of Ontario’s leading career colleges. We’d like to thank all students, faculty, alumni and our communities for your continued support over the past 3+ decades and look forward to shaping your tomorrow for years to come.
Great News for Students, Staff and NAHB!
We are proud to communicate some exciting news that was recently published by the Ministry of Training, Colleges & Universities.
Every year, the Ministry releases information on OSAP default rates for all Community and Private Career Colleges. A low default rate suggests that graduates are in a better financial position following graduation which suggests they’re working.
For the second year in a row, National Academy’s default rate was not only lower than the average private career college default rate, but also lower than the average default rate of all Community College (Sheridan, Mohawk, etc) graduates. This is a significant achievement.
This result is due to the combined efforts of our students, faculty and administrative staff. We’d like to thank everyone for their continued dedication, support and commitment to our Mission.
It’s something we should all be proud of.
