California passed legislation in Assembly Bill 1217 which you may review the California legislature’s caregiver training mandate which requires:
- 10 hours of training for Safety, Orientation and Core Competencies in 1st year
- 5 hours of Core Competency training annually
Caregiver Training University, created by senior home care industry professionals and educators, provides customized training matching the requirements to enable caregivers to easily become certified through an online caregiver training course.
Caregivers may purchase the online senior care training for $59 or become a member of the professional association of caregivers to receive a t-shirt and lapel pin.
- Log-in at any time
- Maintain access to their training ongoing
- Pass a 36-question exam to confirm retention of information
California caregiver certification may be transferred to any senior home care agency and renewal training also may be received by just adding a renewal course for your account at Caregiver Training University. As caregiver jobs are plentiful as more and more seniors prefer to age-in-place at home, submit your job application at Caregiverlist.
