About the HCA Program
The Home Care Aide basic training program is a 75- Hour course required by Washington State to provide the best quality of life through person-centered home care. The Home Care Aide program is a small, specialized course that starts at 5 students and caps out at 12 students in addition to being 100 % in person. No online theory, emailing questions or interrupted zoom classes. We are here for you.
This course was built to turn any Caregiver into a knowledgeable Home Care Aide. From learning Washington State law on Clients Rights to population specific education, Columbia Safety offers a 10-day fast track to the DSHS approved training needed to assist your loved one or lay down a solid foundation to build a career in the medical field. At this moment, more people are wanting to stay home and not be admitted into a facility so the employment outlook for an HCA in Washington State is by far one of the fastest growing careers currently. It is Columbia Safety’s mission to provide Washington State with an elite care team capable of providing safety, dignity, and independence to any vulnerable person.
