Couple a caregiver shortage and high industry turnover and training not only seems like a nice-to-have but it's a necessity for homecare agencies to retain talent
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) April 26, 2013
myCNAjobs, a growing professional caregiver job network announces an updated release to their certified caregiver training suite for professional caregivers working within the homecare sector. Caregivers new to the field or required to meet new state requirements are able to access the training modules to receive certification for as little as $25 for 30-days of access.
The online certified caregiver training center allows caregivers to take courses at their own pace to advance their skills and provide top care for the elderly.
With over 80 online training modules, caregivers are able to select courses that meet their unique state requirements and specific training needs including:
Duties of a Caregiver
Ethics and Personal Rights
Providing Good Nutrition
Food and Culture
First Aid: Burns and Poisons
First Aid: Sudden Emergencies
Emergency First Aid
Providing Personal Care
End of Life Care
"Licensed senior homecare agencies are required to follow caregiver training requirements established within their state," says Brandi Kurtyka, Chief Marketing Officer of myCNAjobs. "As more states start requiring non-medical homecare workers to receive training prior to employment, the demand for easily accessible and affordable training has never been greater. We're committed to keeping our prices affordable and providing top-notch programming to meet state requirements."
State requirements vary greatly - some states require no formalized training while others are now starting to require 8 to 40+ hours of training before employees start and/or during the first few months of employment.
Caregiver training modules are available 24/7. After 80% successful course completion, caregivers receive a certificate outlining their accomplishment to present to employers for verification.
"In addition to new state requirements, there's a direct correlation between caregiver burnout and level of training," adds Kurtyka. "Couple a caregiver shortage and high industry turnover and training not only seems like a 'nice-to-have' but it's a necessity for homecare agencies to retain talent."
