About Us

Get job ready with LINKS Institute in as little as 6 months.

LINKS Institute is the leader in diploma and certificate-level training in Community & Social service work and health care, with flexible study options offered by PhD’s and Masters in related fields.

LINKS Institute is an online private vocational institute where you can obtain a certificate in as little as 6 months. There are three programs to choose from, and our programs are developed in such a way as to reduce as many barriers as possible for Manitobans seeking education.

  • LINKS Institute is a registered & approved institute with the Province of Manitoba.
  • Learn online. No need to move to a larger community centre to purse education.
  • Learn quickly. Our programs can be completed in as short a time as 6 months.
  • Receive credit where credit is due. Many students take a university or college course without knowing what their ultimate career aspirations are. Some courses might be taken but never utilized towards a full degree. As a LINKS Institute certificate is easily attainable (with hard work!), you’ll receive credit in return for a short 6-month commitment.
