Basic Care Aide Registration Available Through LeadingAge Minnesota

Efficiently and effectively train caregivers using the Basic Care Aide Curriculum from EduCare. Beginning September 26, registration for this training program

will once again be available through LeadingAge Minnesota. Registration through LeadingAge National will end on September 30.

Thanks to the generous support of the LeadingAge Minnesota Foundation and EduCare, the Basic Care Aide Curriculum is available at no cost to LeadingAge Minnesota members. The Basic Care Aide program is designed to train displaced workers or redeploy current staff—like marketing or receptionists—in this crisis environment. It includes 9 hours of online training with 2 hours of skills and competency testing. Skills learned include infection prevention and control, emergency preparedness, abuse prevention, dementia care, bathroom assistance, mobility and more.

If your organization currently uses EduCare for your training needs, the curriculum is already available in your EduCare library. Contact Jennifer Anderson, President & CEO of EduCare if you need assistance. If your organization is not an EduCare user, LeadingAge Minnesota members can enroll students through the registration platform here: https://educarebasiccareaide.com/

Contact Jenna Kellerman at LeadingAge Minnesota or Educare’s Jennifer Anderson with questions.
