What is on-the-job training?

(1) Effective July 1, 2012, on-the-job training is a method of training where the long-term care worker successfully demonstrates in the seventy-hour long-term care worker basic training, any or all of the core competencies for personal care or infection control skills while working with a client on the job, instead of in a practice training setting.
(2) On-the-job training must be provided by a qualified instructor as described in WAC 388-71-1055, who directly observes, coaches, and reinforces skills training for up to two long-term care workers at a time. The instructor providing the on-the-job training:
(a) Does not have to be the instructor who has taught the core competency training;
(b) Must not be someone whose primary job duty is providing direct care to clients; and
(c) May be the immediate supervisor in a home care agency of the long-term care worker receiving this training.
(3) The instructor overseeing this training must:
(a) Submit DSHS required forms and become an approved instructor for the core competency of basic training; and
(b) Verify on a DSHS approved skills checklist or other department approved form, the long-term care worker's successful completion of the demonstrated skills.
(4) For the person receiving on-the-job training, the hours spent in on the job training may count toward the completion of basic training requirements.
(5) The training program must get department approval for the on-the-job training hours as part of the seventy hour training.
