DOH Certification Requirements

If you need certification, start the process as soon as possible! We have mapped out the steps required to become certified.

If you need Basic Training, register for your classes within the first two weeks of your hire date to get the best choice of class options. If you want to take Instructor-Led Continuing Education (CE) classes, register as early as possible to get the best choice of class options before the deadline (the deadline is your birthday).

Take Online Classes for CE Credits

Online Continuing Education courses are an easy and convenient way to get the Continuing Education (CE) hours you need as a Home Care Aide. You can view available courses, take classes and see your credits right from your computer — 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Help Improve Future Classes

Your input is important — take the survey to help make our classes better.

Course Survey

The Training Partnership Customer Service Team would like your feedback to provide the best possible training for our students. These online surveys are short, and your feedback makes a difference! Your feedback will help us:

  • Improve classes
  • Make sure your opinions are heard
  • Better meet your needs as a student

After you complete a course, follow the “Take Survey” link on your student home page to review the course.

In-Person Feedback and Focus Groups

In addition to surveys, the Training Partnership collects input from students through in-person feedback and focus groups. These opportunities allow students to share their ideas and feedback to improve classes. If you are interested in participating, email feedback@myseiubenefits.org and give us your full name and date of birth in the email. We will contact you in the future for feedback opportunities.
