This program is designed to prepare you for an entry-level position as a personal care aide. You do not need any prior experience or training in this field, but you should be at least 18 years old and have a high school diploma or equivalent.
Most states require additional agency-directed training of employees after they are hired. This personal care aide training course is not intended as a substitute for the additional agency-directed training required by a state. Students are responsible for determining the training and competency requirements of employers in the states in which they wish to be employed.
This course does not meet the requirements for students intending to work in Florida, Hawaii, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Rhode Island, Washington DC, and Wyoming.
