CareAcademy's Curriculum Management tool allows dashboard admins the ability to establish an initial and/or annual curriculum to be assigned to every caregiver associated with the respective dashboard.
When your CareAcademy dashboard is being created, it is automatically populated with the CareAcademy recommended curriculum for the state in which your agency is located. This curriculum will take into account any compliance mandates that need to be followed, if applicable.
What we're going to cover in this article:
- Adding classes to your training curriculum
- Removing classes from your training curriculum
- Advanced options for your annual curriculum
- Publishing your curriculum
Editing your Training Curriculum
Step 1: Select the desired curriculum tab you wish to edit (Initial or Annual). If you need assistance navigating to the Curriculum Management page, please visit our Curriculum Management 101 article.
Step 2: Select the "Add Classes" button. Upon selection, the CareAcademy Class Catalog will appear.
Step 3: Locate the desired classes to be added to the curriculum.
- Classes can be located in the following ways:
- Searching by keyword
- Searching by topic utilizing the drop-down menu
Step 4: Select the "+ Add" button.
- It's important to note that selecting the "+Add" button does not automatically add a class to the curriculum. The Publish button must be selected in order to make the curriculum change go into effect.

Step 2: Select the option to expand to see more details about the desired class you wish to remove.
Step 3: Select the "Remove Class" button.
It's also possible to remove classes via the Class Catalog. As seen in the above screenshot, if a class is already within your curriculum there will be an option to "Remove."
Advanced options for your annual curriculum
For your annual curriculum, it is possible to customize the due date, as well as determine the training schedule for when your caregivers are enrolled in their annual curriculum. To learn more about this, please click here.
Publishing Your Curriculum
Once you have built the initial and annual curriculum to your liking, you must select the "Publish" button in order to publish these changes to your dashboard. This button should be selected on both the initial and annual curricula pages separately once each curriculum is determined.
New caregivers will receive this curriculum when added to the dashboard. Pre-existing caregivers will receive updates to their respective curricula if they have not yet started the curricula or if they are in progress of completing it.
