Acquiring national caregiver certification places you above others competing for employment in the caregiver field because your certification is through the ACA, the most established and respected caregiver training and certification organization in the U.S. In the caregiver profession it is well known that if you are not nationally certified with the American Caregiver Association then you are not considered a certified caregiver. This is the weight that our caregiver certification carries across all over the world.
More critically, national caregiver certification is the expectation in the industry. The same is true for assisted living manager certification. Therefore, we strongly urge you to keep this in mind as you look to advance your career in the health care field, as a personal care aide, caregiver or assisted living manager more specifically. Having our certification simply puts you ahead of the game now, and in the long term.
