Free HHA Training in AK – Alaska

A home health aide is often referred to as an HHA.  Home heath aides provide care services for individuals in their home.  These individuals often have disabilities or are elderly and require some assistance with their activities of daily living.  Home health aides may or may not need to be certified.  They can still be required to have some training.

The training for a home health aide is often through hands on training.  A new HHA will learn about their tasks and duties by working directly with their new clients.  This can be an effective way to learn about a career as a home health aide if a client does not have any overly specialized needs.

When a HHA learns about their career by working directly with a new client, their training is free.  If an individual is required to have CPR and other certifications before working with a client, there might be a charge for their training class and certification exam.  An individual, who is attending one of these courses to become an HHA, should ask their employer if they could reimburse them for expenses related to training.  Many employers will provide reimbursement for these fees to new and current home health aides.

You can receive free HHA training in Alaska if you contact a hospice agency, hospice agencies usually deal with home health aides and if you commit your self to working with them they could give you your hha training for free.

Note: The following is a list of a few Hospice agencies in Alaska where you could get more information on how to start working as a Home Health Aide and make sure to ask them if they provide free HHA training if you work for them.
