Caregiver Training Online for Senior Caregivers

Senior caregivers are now required to take specific caregiver training courses in more than half of the states nationwide. Let’s just say in states where there are more cows than people, the state health departments now mandate caregiver training programs to cover specific topics.

Online caregiver training courses are acceptable to meet these requirements. Partly because senior care takes place in the senior’s homes and it is difficult for caregivers to all be in one place for in-person training by a manager.

Caregivers may find online training to be convenient, and smart-phone and tablet-friendly through Caregiver Training University. In addition, the courses are written for in-home caregivers, to provide specific tools they can implement as a caregiver in the home.

Training programs for caregivers online by Caregiver Training University allow the caregivers to log-in to their account and log-out as often as they would like and maintain access to the training ongoing. The CTU course offerings were created by experienced senior home care professionals and offer many unique features just for senior caregivers. They also celebrate the caregivers with a t-shirt and lapel pin offer.

Caregiver Training University Delivers Industry’s Best Caregiver Training

Caregiver Training Courses Review

Senior caregiver training requirements vary in each state of the U.S.A., but the basic caregiver training components are consistent for more than 30 states that mandate specific caregiver training topics. For caregivers seeking the right training, it is important to understand both the quality of the training and the specifics of the state caregiver certification requirements.

Caregiver Training University: provides the only training customized for state requirements and the only training with courses outlined with topics that exactly match the state mandates along with an in-depth exam to confirm retention of the training information. Tutorial videos are included, with an experienced Doctor of Gerontology. The industry’s only Certified Women-Owned Business (a rigorous progress that allows the company to be certified as a Diversity Supplier for both public companies and government entities). One of their founders owned a successful senior home care agency sold to a national company which has allowed them to create many specific tools for caregivers and home care agencies as they truly understand the industry. The CTU training makes it easy to know you are enrolling caregivers in the right caregiver training course for your state’s requirements. Only training company providing individual caregiver training that recognizes caregivers.

Caregiver Training University offers the most affordable individual caregiver training and the only 100% in-the-cloud product, making it easy for caregivers to take the courses each year.

Priced right for senior home care and offers better pricing and interactive training than any other service on the market.

Caregiverlist maintains the U.S. Trademark for senior care costs list and partners with Caregiver Training University.

Care Academy: Baby-sitter training provider that took $3.2 million in Venture Capital funding to come into the senior care market. Has continued to raise more capital as not operating at a profit. Hired outside software developers and writers so content is not specific for home care. Founders and staff not experienced in senior home care. The product does not offer innovative online tools for caregivers and is not written to match state training requirements. Expensive monthly subscription, not customized for state content. VC guys always want their money back and typically when they pull the plug it’s not pretty. Their training product is off-the-shelf and lacks tools for in-home caregivers. But that’s what you get when you hire freelancers without experience in senior care to write your training. High staff turnover.

Relias: German-owned company that has consolidated multiple companies in the industry in order to scale and operate software-as-a-service. Laid off staff when purchased IPCEd and OnCourse Learning. Off-the-shelf training product, operating as a traditional software product, lacking unique tools for in-home caregivers that you will find with Caregiver Training University. Monthly subscriptions that are not cost-effective for home care agencies with high turnover of staff. No dedicated account manager.

IPCEd: Institute of Professional Care Education locked their customers into 3-year contracts before selling their company to OnCourse Learning which then sold their company to Relias. They were impossible to reach by telephone, their customers told us, after this transition. Old-school software product was clunky and required clients to go shopping for the right content and hope that it matched state requirements.

Now IPCEd is part of Relias, a German-owned company that does not produce training specific to state private-duty home care needs.

In The Know: provides training material that they prefer to deliver as PDF’s, which means it is ink-on-paper training. Specializes in Certified Nursing Aide (C.N.A.) training and then expanded to provide caregiver training. Majority of their offering is C.N.A. CEU’s. Online product is new and they use a company in Canada to provide the platform for their editorial training product. Lacks customization for state requirements and is not a cloud-based product but instead an old-school editorial product shoveled online (shovelware) that you get to through the cloud. Lacks interactive exam and state requirements.

Professional Association of Caregivers uses Caregiver Training University senior care training classes as they have lead the way in innovation in the industry, offering very cost-effective training that rewards caregivers, matches state requirements, is smart-phone and tablet friendly and recognizes the achievements of individual caregivers. Senior home care agencies also provided us with feedback that Caregiver Training University has excellent customer service and staff that are all experienced in senior home care.
