Home care aides support people who face challenges in performing the activities of daily living to live as independently and safe as possible.
The Home Care Aide (HCA) Training Program in Olympia, WA and Renton, WA was designed for individuals across Thurston, Mason, Lewis, and King counties desiring to work in private homes, Adult Family Homes, and Assisted Living Facilities. The DSHS approved 75-hour Home Care Aide Training Program consists of both online and classroom training across Washington state.
The S&H Olympia, WA and Renton, WA Home Care Aide Training Program is a course that has 43 hours of online training and 32 hours of classroom training.

The in-person classes are each offered once a month. Classes can be taken in most any order, but all online classes must be completed before you can take the hands on skills classes.
