Las Vegas, NV, June 12, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- The Center for Quality Eldercare Services (CQES) is now the first licensed private postsecondary school for caregivers and PCA’s in the state of Nevada. What that means for the Nevada community is that now there is a physical location for certification of PCA’s and caregivers. CQES provides multicultural awareness and an understanding. The profession deserves to have a certified program that exceeds all state requirements.
Why is this important, because in 15-years it is projected that the amount of caregivers per client will drop from 7 to 3. Which means that the demand is outpacing the caregivers. The good news is that Gretchen Batis knows that this shortage is occurring. It’s the reason she decided to fill the industry’s void and train the “Next Generation” of caregivers. After receiving CQES training, PCA’s and caregivers will enter the industry well trained and certified.
What makes CQES unique?
• CQES has a state of the art facility that provides an innovative, exciting and welcoming learning environment.
• CQES has combined classroom instruction with real life living situations so that the students can learn and then demonstrate the skills needed to become a PCA or caregiver.
• CQES training ensures that each caregiver exceed state mandated requirements.
• CQES has placed over 160 graduates into the workforce (some prior to graduating). This is an 85% job placement rate and is increasing.
• Online training is not efficient because it cannot verify a person's ability nor can it give the verification of the training proficiency.
• Online courses cannot provide the hands on skills and certification process.
• CQES students receive comprehensive training up to 80-hours. (That’s 10 times the State minimum).
• CQES is a training provider for Workforce Connections in accordance with the Affordable Care Act.
