About this Event

HCA/Home Care Aide Class Schedule:

Home Care Aide Classes by Visiting Angels. Looking to work as a caregiver in a long term care setting in Washington State? You will need to obtain an approved license. We offer HCA classes with an experienced, high-quality instructor. Additional information regarding Washington State's HCA licensing requirements click here.

HCA Class is a total of 75 hours, which consists of 5 in-person classes (25 hours) +plus 50 hours of on-line self study. All classes must be completed in order to receive a certificate of completion. You must have a certification of completion in order to register for the State licensing exam (administered by Prometric). Our Tacoma classroom is a Regional Test Site Location, so you have the added benefit of being able to train in the same location that you will take your licensing test in.

HCA Class includes Dementia Level 1 and Mental Health Level 1. If you need Dementia and Mental Health classes only, please contact our instructor for details about how to register for those individual topics.
