Caregivers looking to increase their skills and individuals seeking to become Personal Care Aides can now become certified through the Institute for Professional Care Education (IPCed).
Personal Care Aide is the fastest growing profession in the United States, and this new online training program makes it convenient for those wanting to gain employment. This certification is appropriate for both the paid, professional caregiver as well as for family caregivers who are taking care of loved ones.
IPCed’s Personal Care Aide Certification is a comprehensive 40 hour course designed to prepare the individual to become a caregiver for adults who are elderly or disabled. Many long term care insurance companies will accept this certification for reimbursement of caregiver expenses.
All courses are provided online so learners can take them whenever and wherever is convenient. The PCA certification is comprised of six modules, with many courses in each section. These interactive courses use a variety of teaching methods, including streaming videos, and can be taken at the learner’s pace. Learners are also able to pause and resume each course as needed.
Courses cover a wide range of important topics from basic care skills like communication, toileting, and privacy, to more advanced topics such as heart attacks & shock, end of life care, and cultural differences.
Obtaining this certification demonstrates to potential employers – from assisted living communities to home care agencies to private family clients – a high level of commitment and dedication to providing the best care possible.
