I have had a very good experience with ABM College. The campus has a huge facility, located close to Franklin station, providing easy access. The college has excellent teaching equipment and they really emphasize hands-on training. The lab is world class, its Health Care Aide lab is the best in Calgary. It is an exceptional place to study. And they all really have your best interest in mind. It is very multicultural too, making it easy to adapt and make friends. 10/10 would recommend.
