Certified Caregiver Training at GateWay
Whether you find yourself in a caregiver role for an ill parent, work with the elderly and need a refresher or want to work in an assisted living environment, you can become a certified caregiver through a course at GateWay Community College in Phoenix.
The “Certified Caregiver Training” course is offered separate from a larger caregiver training and development initiative at GateWay. The class will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., from Jan. 23 - Feb. 1. It is open to anyone who is over 18 years of age.
“This class is specifically tailored for individuals who want to work in an assisted living facility as a certified caregiver as mandated by the Arizona Department of Health,” said Jan Davie, director of the program. “However, anyone interested in learning more about care giving is welcome.”
The course is designed for individuals who want to work as a direct care worker, or someone who cares for individuals with disabilities or a chronic illness that require assistance.
The fees for the course tuition and books are $270. To inquire about the program, ask for the Certified Caregiving/section #44110 class. For information and registration, call (602) 286-8157 or send an email to email@example.com. GateWay Community College is located at 40th and Washington and has a light rail stop on campus.
