What is On-the-Job Training?
On-the-Job Training happens while you do your normal work as a caregiver.
On-the-Job Training can get you up to 12 Continuing Education (CE) credits, depending on your 2020 CE deadline and if you worked during the whole time period (between March 1, 2020 and February 28, 2021).
Why do On-the-Job Training credits exist?
Specific instruction was provided during the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic in Washington state in long-term care environments (including in-home caregiving) and covered a range of pandemic-related training topics. This instruction is now considered On-the-Job Training.
Do I get paid for On-the-Job Training like I do when I complete CE courses?
Do I need to do anything to get on-the-job training CE credits applied to my transcript?
On-the-Job training credits will be applied for all caregivers who worked and needed CE credit during March 1, 2020 and February 28, 2021.
Your employer will get monthly reports for any CE requirements that have been completed.
