Caregiver Training – access and quality make all the difference

At the first of this year we launched our newest online caregiver training course:  the Personal Care Aide Certification course offered through our licensed career school, the Institute for Professional Care Education ( 

This course is being used by individuals seeking to become familiar with caregiving so they can open their own home care agency.  It’s being used by families so that a granddaughter can be prepared to help care for grandpa.

It’s being used by students in career schools who are studying to become nursing assistants and home health aides.

The good news is that it is being used to increase the number of trained, skilled caregivers throughout the country. 

The even better news is that the students love the learning process.  Just listen:

“This entire course showed me step by step how to be a good caregiver! It also provided the does and don’ts on different situations that you may experience out in the field! I give this program an A+!”

“Online learning was excellent!”

“The audio option made the online experience more personal and rewarding.”

“I have taken many online courses and this one was right up there with some of the better ones I’ve taken.”

“Every caregiver should have access to this kind of website at all times.”

It’s gratifying to hear that the students find this course valuable and interesting.  I might be a little bit biased, but I certainly agree with the last student comment:  every caregiver should have access to information that can help them provide the very best care possible to every person in their care.

It’s what I would want for my mother’s caregiver – and definitely what I’d want for my own caregiver!
