Available Trainings:

  • Home Health Aide Training

    HHA stands for Home Health Aide, and HHA training provides individuals aspiring to work in this field with the necessary education and preparation. Home health aides fulfill a vital role in the healthcare system, offering assistance and support to elderly, disabled, or chronically ill individuals who require help with daily tasks but prefer to remain in their own homes rather than relocating to a care facility. HHA training covers a broad spectrum of topics, including personal care skills such as bathing and grooming, basic medical care like administering medication, nutrition and meal preparation, infection control, client safety, communication and interpersonal skills, as well as ethical and legal considerations. This comprehensive training equips individuals with the skills, knowledge, and compassion needed to provide quality care and support to those in need, fostering independence and enhancing overall well-being.

  • Personal Care Assistant

    PCA training refers to the educational programs and preparation provided to individuals who seek to become personal care aides. Personal care aides are essential members of the healthcare team who assist individuals with various daily activities, enabling them to maintain independence and quality of life while residing in their own homes or in community settings. PCA training typically encompasses a range of topics, including assistance with personal hygiene, grooming, dressing, mobility support, meal preparation, light housekeeping, medication reminders, and companionship. Additionally, PCA training may cover important aspects such as communication skills, understanding client rights and confidentiality, safety protocols, and recognizing signs of abuse or neglect. Completion of PCA training may lead to certification or licensure, depending on regulatory requirements in the individual's jurisdiction. Overall, PCA training equips individuals with the necessary skills, knowledge, and empathy to provide compassionate and effective care to those in need of assistance with daily living activities.
  • Personal Care Aide Upgrading:

    Personal care aides (Level II) are issued a certificate from a NYSDOH or NYSED approved training program after completing a minimum of 40 hours of training. To upgrade to a home health aide, a personal care aide must undergo an additional 35 hours of training provided by a HHATP (Home Health Aide Training Program).
    The 35 hours of training include 19 hours of classroom training and 16 hours of supervised practical training.
    The personal care aide must have direct experience providing personal care services to home health patients in their homes.
    The personal care aide must demonstrate competency in the skills required by the personal care aide training program before receiving additional training as a home health aide.
    Documentation of successful completion of the 35 hours of training and proof of competency in personal care aide skills must be kept in the individual's file.
  • Certified Nurse Aide Transitioning:

    Certified nurse aides (CNAs) employed in residential health care facilities (RHCF) provide services comparable to home health aides. CNAs in RHCFs must be certified and listed in the New York State RHCF Nurse Aide Registry, which requires completing a State-approved RHCF nurse aide training program of at least 100 hours and passing a competency examination.
    HHATPs have the capability to augment a CNA's training with additional classroom and supervised practical training in skills not included in the nurse aide training program.
    Skills such as assistance with medications, handling the patient's money, maintaining a clean, safe home environment, safety procedures, blood pressure monitoring, and reporting in the home care setting may be included in the additional training.
    CNAs registered in the New York State Nurse Aide Registry are not required to repeat training but must demonstrate competency in additional skills before receiving a home health aide certificate.
The competency evaluation program is an alternative to standardized training and competency evaluation for eligible individuals in the Home Health Aide Training Program (HHATP)

About Competency Evaluation Program

Welcome to our comprehensive competency evaluation program, designed to assess and certify individuals in home health aide (HHA) tasks through an alternative evaluation method, ensuring flexibility while upholding standards. Our evaluation comprises various components tailored to measure both theoretical knowledge and practical skills essential for home health aides. The written test, derived from our HHA Curriculum (HCC) and Home Health Related Tasks (HRTC) curricula, evaluates candidates' understanding of crucial information. Additionally, our Procedure Demonstration Checklists assess practical skills required for home health aide tasks, ensuring thorough evaluation. Eligibility for our program is diverse, encompassing nursing assistants with one year of full-time experience in a general hospital within the past five years, individuals with documented training from out-of-state programs, home health aides with documented training who have not worked for 24 consecutive months, nursing students with recent coursework involvement in home health aide tasks, and veterans trained in the United States Military as medical technicians or medics. Documentation requirements vary based on eligibility criteria, including transcripts, course descriptions, skills checklists, and military training records for veterans. For those who demonstrate competency in some areas but not all, additional training is provided as needed, with competency reevaluation targeted only in areas requiring remediation. Upon successful completion of the competency evaluation program, participants are awarded a Certificate of Completion, affirming their competency in home health aide tasks through our methodology. Join us today to embark on a path to certification and career advancement in the healthcare field.
