Share Article

The Caregiverlist® digital California 10-Hour Senior Caregiver Training course provides certification training for California in-home care aides in accordance with Assembly Bill No. 1217 of the Home Care Services Consumer Protection Act.

Thank you for allowing me to take the online course from my smartphone as this was very convenient for my schedule.

The Caregiverlist® California 10- Hour Senior Caregiver Training Course fulfills all required first year training outlined in Article 8. 1796.44 of California’s Home Care Consumer Protection Act.

California caregiver training includes five hours of orientation and safety training prior to working with a client, along with five hours of annual core competency training and can be completed through an online training course. Effective January 1, 2016, new Caregivers must fulfill these 10 hours of training and 5-hour renewal training annually, all available through Caregiverlist® Caregiver Training University.

Personal care aides and home health aides are in the top five fastest growing occupations in the U.S., so states have enacted training legislation to protect both the growing number of in-home care aides and the seniors they serve.

Caregiverlist® Caregiver Training University provides caregivers with an online login identification and password for easy 1-click access to the training courses. Because 40% of in-home caregivers receive their certification training enrollment on their smartphones, the Caregiverlist® California 10- Hour Senior Caregiver Training Course classes are implemented to be smartphone and tablet-friendly.

California caregivers receive 24/7 access to course sections, tip sheets, and quizzes that are easy to use and understand. The digital format allows caregivers to study at their own pace, on their own schedule.

After finishing the course, senior caregivers may take the 36-question exam to confirm retention of the information and must score 75% to pass. They may retake the exam if needed, at no extra charge, and receive a new set of questions. Upon successful exam completion, caregivers are awarded a certificate in recognition for passing each Caregiverlist® Caregiver Training University course. Caregivers may print a wallet card size or full-size certificate for framing, or share digitally with a prospective employer.

The Caregiverlist® California 10-Hour Senior Caregiver Training Course includes:
Caregiver Job Responsibilities and Protocol
Senior Caregiver Job Description

“I finished the course and passed the exam with a 97% score. Thank you for allowing me to take the online course from my smartphone as this was very convenient for my schedule. And I really like the certificate with my name on it, too!”--Martha Gonzalez

Professional caregivers may purchase the course online for $59 and senior care companies may purchase bundles of training class passes to train their caregiver employees on their own customized portal. In addition to professional caregivers, California family caregivers may also acquire training as the need for in-home caregivers increases.
