Our Training Process
All caregivers complete an in-person onboarding process. They will then complete either a 5-hour in-person training or an 8-hour online training in addition to two training sessions in the field with our trainers before being scheduled with a client.
For client's requiring additional assistance, a nurse will come out to the client's home with the caregiver to train them on additional tasks (called nurse delegation) before the caregiver is able to perform these tasks. Caregivers in Washington will also complete a 75-hour Home Care Aide training course to become certified as an HCA within 200 days of employment.
