Student Testimonials

  • John D. Ellis, Primary Care Paramedic, Sudbury EMS

    I attended the Modern Hairstyling & Esthetics Primary Care Paramedic program offered at the Sudbury Campus. Although the program was VERY difficult I found it rewarding and take great pride in my completion of the program. The instructor staff worked very hard to develop a program that not only meets ministry standards but also thoroughly prepares its graduates for the rigors, trials and tribulations of being a paramedic. I have since secured a full time position as a paramedic in my local area and feel that Modern Hairstyling & Estheticsprepared me not only in the theory and skill portion of the job, but the need to be able to withstand long hours in adverse conditions which are required of a paramedic. My hat is off to Modern Hairstyling & Esthetics, the administration staff, and most importantly the PCP students and Instructors.

  • Mrs. Miriam Laari-Alton, Finlandia Village Nursing Home

    Finlandia Village has extended placement opportunities to many of the students from the Personal Support Worker Diploma Program offered through Modern Hairstyling & Esthetics and has also hired many of these students after completion of their studies. We have found the knowledge, skill level and professionalism of these students to be a reflection of the excellent training they have received through the college and their instructor Mr. Claude Chenette.

  • Angeva Fournier, Personal Support Worker, St. Joseph’s Villa

    My decision to return to school after 10 years was one I will never regret. I enrolled at Modern Hairstyling & EstheticsCanada Career College in the Personal Support Worker program. There, I met the most knowledgeable instructors. Not only were they thorough with all subjects pertaining to my program but they also prepared me for an easy transition into the workforce. The day after I finished my placement I found myself going to many interviews. I found employment in my field within the week. I cannot stress enough how all staff members at Modern Hairstyling & Estheticswent above and beyond the call of duty to assure all students meet or exceed the ministry standards. I want to thank all of you as you made my learning experience one that I will never forget

  • Laura Cooper, Certified Personal Support Worker, In-Home Care, North Bay

    As a PSW student, I was very excited to apply the knowledge I had acquired in the classroom instruction portion of the program towards my upcoming placement. Although I had obtained excellent grades, I was surprised that once on placement, my confidence level in applying the skills and knowledge was not high. Patti Burke, our instructor, was instrumental in getting me through the practical portion of the program. When I felt I was giving up on myself, Patti never gave up on me. She gave me the strength to succeed as a PSW and her confidence in me never failed. I am proud to say that I graduated the Personal Support Worker program with honours. I am forever grateful to Patti and the college for believing in me

  • Lora Hatch

    The professionalism and warmth of the Modern Hairstyling & Estheticsstaff at the North Bay campus made the process of returning to school an easy and enjoyable one. The classes were engaging, the teachers were outstanding and I have full confidence that I gained the knowledge I needed to have a successful career as a PSW. The condensed curriculum allowed me to re-enter the workforce quickly but didn’t compromise the quality of the education I received. I’m happy to say I found employment even before I graduated with honours. I owe a great deal of thanks to everyone at Modern Hairstyling & Estheticsfor giving me an experience I will never forget!

  • Robby Steed

    For the past ten years, I had tossed the idea around about returning to school. This was a scary thought for me. When I finally decided to take the leap and return back to school, I contacted Modern Hairstyling & Esthetics Canadian Career College, in North Bay. It was the best phone call I ever made! It was not long after my visit to the North Bay Campus, that I decided to take that scary leap back into the classroom, and enrolled in the Personal Support Worker Program. Did I mention I had been out of school for almost thirty years? I truly enjoyed my time at Modern Hairstyling & Esthetics, the teachers were amazing, always welcoming and helpful. They were available every step of the way should you need them. I gained employment directly while on my placement, and have been working full time hours pretty much ever since!

  • Joe Lamothe, Admitting Department, Sudbury Regional Hospital

    I attended Modern Hairstyling & Esthetics, enrolled in the Medical Office Administration program. I am pleased to say that I am currently employed with the Sudbury Regional Hospital thanks to the great instructors and courses offered within the College.

It is a rewarding program, and one that will open up several more doors in the future.

  • Lori Baxter, Office Administration Course

    Returning to school as a mature student was a life changing experience. After working for over 20 years, I really had no idea what I was in for. I never thought going back to school would be so much fun.In a small classroom setting our instructor, Attila Farkas, was able to take the time with each of us focusing on all of our needs. Attila’s patience and understanding are incredible. I have made new friends at Modern Hairstyling & Esthetics it is really hard to leave. I really enjoyed the hands-on learning and Attila was always helpful and supportive.

  • Lisa Masales, Administrative Assistant, Phoenix Industrial Services, Val Caron

    I graduated from the Modern Hairstyling & EstheticsOffice Administrator program with honors and found the staff at the school to be more than willing to help you every step of the way. The program gave me all the knowledge I needed to succeed in an office setting today. With the small class sizes and wonderful teaching staff I felt like a person not a number like most other college institutions. I got a full time job in no time and would recommend Modern Hairstyling & Estheticsto anyone thinking of returning to school. By the way, work at Phoenix is awesome! I love it and can’t thank you enough for setting me up with the interview!

  • Nancy Liddell, Medical Office Administrator

    After leaving my job of twenty years in January 2006, I discovered that it was time to re-evaluate my career and my goals. Even though I had a lot of skills, I discovered very quickly that I was lacking some of the knowledge that employers are now asking for, so I quickly decided to research the schools in the Barrie area. I chose Modern Hairstyling & Esthetics because I liked the curriculum and also because of the professionalism shown by all the staff. I enrolled in the Medical Office Administration program and I feel this was one of the best decisions I have ever made. My teachers are all very knowledgeable and they are all very passionate about what they teach. Their enthusiasm is somehow contagious. All of the staff has been wonderful and helpful. I have also made many close friends during the few months that I have been here and I know they will remain lifelong friends. I have now almost completed the program and I know I will be ready to take on a challenging position upon completion of the program. Thank you so much for all that you have done for me.

  • Debra Webb, Medical Office Administrator

    The day I walked through the doors of Modern Hairstyling & Esthetics in Barrie , I released how fortunate I was to be able to do something I thought never to do again in my life. I was here to upgrade my education by entering the Medical Office Administration course. Another matter of great pride to me is that I am attending the same college as my daughter who is taking the Addiction and Intervention Counseling program. I have great respect for the teachers and staff at the college as they are knowledgeable and very helpful. My sincere thanks to A.J., Kelly, Diane, and Attila who provided excellent training and are all great assets to the college. My experiences at Modern Hairstyling & Estheticshave taught me that you should always be open to new learning experiences and the diploma that I will walk out the door with will be a great asset towards my chosen career path. Thanks again to Modern Hairstyling & Esthetics

  • Gloria Richer, Office Administrator

    I really enjoyed the learning experience at Modern Hairstyling & Esthetics. I was very worried at the beginning because it had been a long time since I was in school. The staff is very helpful and encouraging at all times. My instructors are very knowledgeable in their subjects and have prepared me for the job I will get. The text books will be a great reference tool for me in the future. The placement program is something everyone should try; it really showed me that I could accomplish what I had set out to do. It was a pleasure.

  • Vicki Douglass, Office Administration Course

    My experience here at Modern Hairstyling & Estheticsis one that I will remember and talk about forever. I had not been in a school classroom for almost 40 years and was not sure if I would be able to handle what was waiting for me. What an incredible journey it was. Six months of learning, building new friendships, and fun. Our teacher was one of a kind. I wish I could continue on here because Mr. Farkas made it easy to learn the subjects he was hired to teach. An experience I will never forget.

Upon completing my internship I successfully gained employment. I am currently a full time addiction counsellor with Addiction Canada. I have my own case load and with the skills learned, I can apply them directly to my clients. Thank you to all the staff and Julie, the Addictions Intervention Counselling Program Coordinator and Instructor for all their hard work and dedication to education that has allowed me to benefit from a valuable career.

  • Jeff Graham, Addictions Intervention Counseling

    Returning to school, as a mature student was something I was not prepared for. Changing careers at my age seemed like a daunting task. After exploring many options it became clear Modern Hairstyling & Esthetics would be the only college that could meet my educational unique needs. Canadian Career College was able to deliver a thorough, intensive, educational experience while maintaining a friendly and helpful atmosphere. I feel my time spent at Modern Hairstyling & Estheticshas prepared me for an exciting new career working in the addictions field

  • Shelby Eryn Van Nood

    My time at Modern Hairstyling & Esthetics wasn’t long but it was life changing. I laughed, I cried, I explored new depths within myself. All the challenges were necessary for me to build my new skills and figure out what positive personal characteristics I would bring into the workforce. Through class assignments, group work, role play and finally my placement, I was lucky to gain an amazing hands on experience. This gave me great taste of what it was like to work with a variety of unique people. I have now been working in the mental health field for six months. Everyday I apply the skills I learned while in the classroom, tweaking them and morphing them to best suit different personalities I encounter in my job. I have to thank Modern Hairstyling & Estheticsfor equipping me with the tools I need to be confident in working with other people and making a difference.

  • Bruce Loucks, CCADC

    In 2012, with the blessing of my employer I went back to school Fulltime at Modern Hairstyling & Esthetics. In January 2013, I graduated with honours with an Addictions Intervention Counselling Diploma. With the Addictions Intervention Counselling Diploma I was able to write the CCADC (Canadian Contingent Alcohol & Drug Counsellor) certification in April 2013. The knowledge I gained from the program made it possible to score higher than my colleague with a public college education and a MBA. Currently I am preparing to write my ICADC (International Certified Alcohol and Drug Counsellor) certification this June. I am currently working fulltime day shift for a residential treatment centre.

I have always had an interest in law and within a month of graduation I was working full time in a law office as a legal assistant. The Paralegal/ Law Clerk course prepared me for the work force and the legal field. My life has definitely changed for the better. Thanks to Mona, Barb, Brenda and Yvonne for making the year fly by

  • Sam Green

    I came to Modern Hairstyling & Estheticsas a second career student. I was looking for a lifelong career and decided health care was the way to go. I choose the pharmacy technician program since it wouldn’t restrict me to just one job. I was nervous to start the program since I knew it wasn’t going to be easy but the teachers and program coordinator are so supportive. I not only have one job in my field of study but I have two and couldn’t be happier with what I have accomplished so far for myself! Thank you Modern Hairstyling & Esthetics!!

  • Darren McKibbon, Canadian Air Transport Security Authority Officer Sudbury Airport

    The Police Foundations program at Modern Hairstyling & Esthetics prepared me not only for my future career in policing, but also in my everyday experiences. It helped me better understand my choices as well as the world in which we live. This program helped on an educational level when entering the field of policing and security and, I continue to learn from the theory and practical exercises I experienced in the Police Foundations program. Nothing can fully prepare you for the types of incidents or persons you will come across in policing or the security field, but this program gives you a heads up and the hands-on experience that you can’t find anywhere else. The Police Foundations program at Modern Hairstyling & Estheticswas continuously evolving which always made it interesting. Taking this program was the best thing I ever experienced and applied in my life!
