Continuing education regulations vary from state to state. In states with a formal approval process such as Washington, CareAcademy has tagged state-approved classes with the topic "[state abbreviation] CE" in order to help you identify which classes are approved for continuing education credit. Follow the steps below to determine which classes are approved for continuing education in your state.
Please note, not all states have a formal approval process for continuing education. CareAcademy classes can be used in most states for home care aide continuing education without additional approval. State-specific class tags are only available for states with a formal approval process.
Step 1: Go to your agency's dashboard.
Step 2: Select Curriculum on the upper left side of the dashboard.
Step 3: Click on Add Class.
Step 4: From the Class Catalog, click on the Topic menu where it says "All Classes."
Step 5: Look for your state abbreviation followed by CE in the dropdown list. For example, approved continuing education classes for home care aides in Washinton state appear under the topic WA DSHS HCA CE.
Step 6: After selecting a state's CEs, courses approved for continuing education credit in that state will be listed. You can also confirm that a class is approved for continuing education by looking at the topics associated with the class. Only classes tagged with [state abbreviation] CE are approved for continuing education credit.
CareAcademy continues to submit additional classes in its library for continuing education approval. Class details are updated in the dashboard as approvals are received.
