MaKami Edmonton students were on hand at Edmonton’s K-Days with free massage therapy and all that visited our booth left glad they stopped in.

Said Around the Campus We have lots of training that employers are looking for “MaKami College is the best school for Health Care Aide because we have lots of training that employers are looking for. It’s awesome because you feel like a family; you don’t even feel that you are just a student. You feel like a family because the teachers and employees are very supportive [of] the students. They will support you from the beginning until the end of your course.”

Around Campus: Calgary Boot Stompin’ Good Times The Calgary Stampede is always such a hootin’ n’ hollerin’ good time! MaKami Students were onsite all 11 days (10 days of Stampeding and Sneak a Peak night) and we had so much fun. The crowds lined up and our students delivered massage therapy treatments that made it worth the wait!
