Continuing Education Seeks Partners for Apprenticeship Program
It can be a struggle for caregiver employers to find competent, caring individuals trained to meet the needs of their senior or disabled clients. UNLV Continuing Education has positioned its Personal Care Aide (PCA) Apprenticeship Certificate Program to meet the growing demand for personal care services.  UNLV Continuing Education, through Nevada's Apprenticeship Project, has received approval from the Department of Labor for its PCA program to participate as a registered apprenticeship program. 

Employers now will have a comprehensive, effective method for training new staff in the essential skills and work ethic needed for success as a personal care aide. One of our caregiver partners, Visiting Angels, shares their story.
