Free HHA Training in CT – Connecticut

You can receive free home health aide training for free if you live in Connecticut by approaching a HHA Agency like a Medicare Facility or a Hospice agency. Home health aides work with individuals in their own home.  They often work with elderly men and women who do not yet need to live in a nursing care facility.  A HHA might also work with an individual with an illness or injury who needs a little help with their day-to-day chores.

Training can be a few hundred dollars for individuals who are required to complete a training program before working as a home health aide.  Fortunately, there are always some free HHA training options.

Many home health agencies will provide training for free to new or prospective home health aides.  They do so in order to gather qualified individuals to work for their company.  If your employer pays for any necessary training, you will then need to work for that employer for an agreed upon amount of time.  This is how you “Pay back” your employer for the cost of your training.

Some employers will reimburse individuals who have already paid for the cost of your own training.  You should always keep any receipts related to the tuition for your HHA training courses and other related expenses.  An employer might provide you with a reimbursement of some or all of those fees once they hire you to work for them or after you have worked as a home health aide for a while.

Note: The following is a list of a few Home Health Agencies in Connecticut 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.
