About our Program

This 100-hour Home Health Aide (HHA) Certification program provides students with the skills and knowledge necessary to enter the health field as a Home Health Aide. At the successful completion of this training, students will receive certification in the area of Home Health Aide Level Three, which includes the three different career areas Homemaker, Personal Care Homemaker or full Home Health Aide.

  • The first area, Homemaker, qualifies students to  care for an individual’s home environment.
  • The second area, Personal Care Homemaker,  builds on the Homemaker tasks and adds the  knowledge and skill of assisting a stable but needy client in performing personal care. These activities include learning how to bathe, dress, groom, transfer, and ambulate a client.
  • The third area, Home Health Aide, builds on all  prior learned skills, but adds the special skills of  caring for a medically-ill client. Throughout each  phase of the educational process, students will  become an effective and competent part of a  health care team. At the completion of the program, job placement services are available.

In order to participate in this program, students must be 18 years old and be prepared to take a CORI.
