Creating multiple curriculum tracks and customizing annual curriculum enrollment settings is not available in our Starter/Basic packages. For more information, contact our Customer Support team.
CareAcademy's Curriculum Management tool was designed to ensure that assigning out mandatory agency training requires as little time as possible. With this tool, you're able to create initial and annual curriculum that will automatically be assigned to each caregiver, ensure that your curriculum is in compliance with state regulations (if applicable), and view our entire CareAcademy class library.
An initial and annual bundle together is referred to as a Curriculum Track. It is possible to create as many curriculum tracks as you wish. A caregiver can only be enrolled in a single curriculum track at one time. Creating different curriculum tracks is beneficial if you wish to offer different initial and annual training for a caregiver based on their role or experience.
Where is the Curriculum Management tool located on my dashboard?
The Curriculum Management tool can be accessed via the "Caregiver Curriculum" tab as shown below.
What is Initial and Annual Training?
Initial Training is the foundational set of classes that are assigned to a caregiver upon hire. In other words, this can be considered a caregiver's onboarding training. When adding a new caregiver to your CareAcademy dashboard, it is possible to note whether or not that caregiver needs initial training.
Annual Training is the set of classes you want your caregivers to take year after year. With this tool, it is possible to assign the same annual curriculum each year or to establish a multi-year annual curriculum plan for your caregivers.
Within both the Initial and Annual curriculum management tools, the duration and topics covered in each class will be present. A detailed description for each class can be found by expanding the class record.
How do I edit a caregiver's initial training status?
It is possible to edit the status of your caregiver's Initial Training progress using the Edit function on their profile.
Step 1: Click on the down arrow to the right of the user’s name to expand their profile.
Step 2: Select the "Edit" button.
Step 3: Scroll all the way to the bottom until you reached Caregiver Training. Here, you can select Yes or No to indicate whether or not you want your caregiver to complete the Initial Training. Selecting No will automatically reflect that a caregiver completed their Initial Training without having to take the extra classes.
What else can I accomplish with the Curriculum Management tool?
- Establish your initial and annual curriculum
- Create a multi-year annual curriculum
