Home Health Aide Training
We offer a 76-hour Home Health Aide Training Course approved by the NJ Board of Nursing.We hold training sessions every month and help students with the certification process. If you are interested in becoming a Certified Home Health Aide, Caring World & Health Services has Registered Nurses on staff to train and supervise all new Home Health Aides. Our training sessions take place each month. It takes only two weeks to become a Certified HHA.
At Caring World the Training program covers:
▪ Understanding Basic Human Needs
▪ Working With Sick and/or Elderly Persons
▪ Food & Nutrition
▪ Nutrition Problems
▪ Preventing Spread of Diseases
▪ Anatomy & Physiology
▪ Physical Therapy & Body Mechanics
▪ Emergency Care & Procedures
▪ Accident Prevention & Safety in the Home
▪ Understanding Mental Health & Mental Illness
▪ Understanding the Elderly
▪ Personal Care Services
▪ Death & Dying
Our course begins every Monday of the month and runs for two weeks, Monday through Friday. The course starts at 9 AM and ends around 5 PM. We do occasionally offer a night course that is given from Monday through Thursday, 5 PM to 8 PM; however, the day course is offered more frequently than the night course.
After completing the two-week course, you will be given a test. When you pass, you will go on to fill out an application to be mailed to the Board of Nursing. After a criminal history background check and subsequent approval, we will start providing you with casework.
Below, please find and review the dates and times of our HHA training course for the year. You will need to come into the office to fill out an application. Please also call the agency to find out the rates for each class. Thank you and we hope to see you soon!
