Initial training, certification, and continuing education requirements for caregivers varies by state. In many states professional caregivers are licensed by the state they work in.
The majority of our individual training programs are designed for individuals who are already licensed professionals. However, we do offer two online courses that can help you prepare for a rewarding career as a professional caregiver:
Personal Care Aide Certification: This comprehensive course is designed to prepare the individual for work as a personal care aide, providing care to individuals living in private homes, assisted living, home care or other care settings.
Caregiver Core Certification: A series of basic caregiver courses leading to Caregiver Core Certification. This certification course forms the foundational training program for beginning work as a caregiver.
