Jump Start Your Career as a Home Health Aide Today!
Those seeking an entry level position within the health care field may want to consider becoming a home health aide (HHA). These professionals help provide health care services within the home of the client, and perform a wide array of duties.
Contrary to popular belief, the HHA is not simply a certified nursing assistant (CNA) that performs services within the home, and some type of specialized training is generally needed. As a matter of fact, some states require that the individual successfully complete a course and pass an examination in order to work as an HHA. Therefore, those interested in this type of work will need to complete some formal training.
Although the educational requirements for this profession can vary significantly from one state to the next, and even by the employer, those providing services paid for by Medicaid or Medicare must obtain appropriate credentials. This is true whether working independently or for a home health agency, or even a hospice agency.
Credentials needed typically include a competency evaluation that consists of either state certification or successful passing of a competency examination. A high school diploma or general equivalency diploma (GED) is typically required and the applicant must submit to a criminal background check.
Obtaining the Necessary Training
There may be a variety of higher learning organizations that offers training for those seeking a career as a home health aide. This can include vocational schools, community colleges, community organizations and even on-the-job training.
However, the duration of these programs are not convenient for those who wish to jump start into a new career. There are other options available, including our 7 day course that prepares the learner to start their new profession immediately. In addition, there are no lengthy waiting lists or certain times when you must enroll, making ExceedU Training Center one of the most convenient options.
HHA Training Costs
Contrary to popular belief, it does not have to cost an arm and a leg to obtain training as a home health aide. While some learning institutions are fairly expensive and may charge by the number of hours, our program is a very reasonable $395.00.
Local community college and vocational school programs can cost twice as much or more, and cannot be completed in as little as a week. Considering that the U.S. Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the top 10% of home health aides earned around $30,000 annually as of 2010, this is a very small investment for a rapidly growing career.
