Home Health Aide Course

Are you looking for an opportunity where you can make a difference in people’s lives?  There has never been a more perfect time for you to start Home Health Aide Training in Florida.  As the average age of the United States’ population increases,  demand is greater than ever for competent Home Health Aide professionals. 

In addition,  healthcare technology has become more compact and less expensive motivating many to elect to be cared for in their home instead of in nursing homes, assisted living facilities and/or hospitals. In many cases, the care required is monitoring vital signs, assisting with daily activities like preparing meals and cleaning and helping with personal care such as bathing. 

Ultimately, getting your Home Health Aide certification will be a fulfilling and empowering experience that can change your life, as well as improve the lives of the clients in your care.

NOTE:  Once you successfully complete the Home Health Aide training course, a two hour in-person, hands-on clinical practice session is required to meet the criteria for certification.

Are you looking for an opportunity where you can make a difference in people’s lives? Become a Florida Home Health Aide quickly when you successfully complete this online HHA course. The HHA Certificate classes do not require individuals have a high school diploma or a GED to be eligible for enrollment.

If you already have completed a training program as a certified nursing assistant (CNA) through Southern Technical Institute within the past 18 months or if you hold a current Florida Certified Nurse Assistant certification, you can take an express Home Health Aide (HHA) class and receive a Home Health Aide 75-hour certificate. The 75 hour HHA certificate is important because it meets Florida AHCA guidelines and enables you to work for Home Health Aide (HHA) agencies that bill Medicaid/Medicare for approved client services. All Home Health Aide courses offered at Southern Technical Institute meet the criteria for AHCA guidelines. At the end of your training with Southern Technical Institute, you will have the knowledge necessary to be successful on the Florida HHA Certification Competency Test established by AHCA.
