Am I required to attend these classes?
Will these classes help me find employment?
Many caregivers have stated that these classes have enhanced their employment opportunities. If you are on the PA registry, all of the classes you complete will show on each list that is sent to consumers looking to hire caregivers. Clients prefer to hire caregivers who are trained.
Participants receive a Certificate of Attendance for each class they attend. We recommend you assemble a binder with your certificates to demonstrate your learning experiences to potential employers.
Call the Training Information Line at (866) 985-6322 option 6 to hear a listing of future class dates and times. Flyers are also posted in your local IHSS Public Authority offices.
If you are a new applicant and are not working for an IHSS client, you are not eligible to attend classes until you have completed the application process and are made Available on the PA registry.
How do I register for classes?
You can register by calling the Training Unit at 866-985-6322 Option 6
