Oregon City, OR, November 04, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Institute for Professional Care Education (IPCEed) today launched their newest online training course , the Personal Care Aide Certification Course.
“This course is uniquely designed to prepare individuals for entry into the field of senior caregiving or healthcare,” comments Sharon K. Brothers, Director of the Institute. “Employers are looking for people who have demonstrated an interest in healthcare and learning, and will give hiring preference to people with this type of Certification. It can also prepare people to enter a career in a high-growth field, with lots of opportunities for job and career advancement.”
The Personal Care Aide Certification Course, designed for in-home, and assisted living caregivers, includes training in ethics, client’s rights, and elder abuse as well as training in emergency first aid, personal care and assistance with daily living tasks like mobility, bathing, and toileting. Throughout the course students are taught to respect the individual’s rights to privacy and dignity and provide care in such a way that the person’s independence is enhanced and supported rather than removed. The entire course provides a comprehensive program of more than 40 hours of caregiver training.
“Families employing caregivers in their homes may also wish to offer this Personal Care Aide Certification Course,” says Brothers. “I know if someone were coming to my mother’s home providing care for her I’d feel significantly more confident knowing that person had received this Certification.”
The Institute for Professional Care Education (IPCed) is licensed by the Oregon Department of Education. IPCed’s Personal Care Aide course meets rigorous standards as a complete, 40 hour course designed to prepare the individual to become a caregiver for elderly and disabled adults. Many long term care insurance companies will accept this Certification for reimbursement of caregiver expenses.
