What documentation is required for a long-term care worker to apply for the home care aide certification or recertification?

(1) Successful completion of the 70-hour home care aide basic training, the two hours of orientation, and the three hours of safety training (referred to collectively as the 75 hours of training) must be documented on a DSHS approved 75-hour training certificate, transcript, or proof of completion by an approved training entity verifying that a total of 75 hours of training have occurred.
(2) An approved training entity issuing and signing a DSHS 75-hour training certificate must verify that the long-term care worker has the certificates or transcript required documenting two hours of DSHS-approved orientation, three hours of DSHS-approved safety training, and the 70-hour home care aide basic training, as described in this chapter. When applying to the department of health for home care aide certification, the long-term care worker may only submit a 75-hour training certificate that has been issued by the department or the training partnership.
(3) For annual home care aide recertification, successful completion of 12 hours of DSHS-approved continuing education training must be documented on a certificate(s) or transcript(s) issued by a department approved training entity.
(4) The long-term care worker, certified home care aide, and employer must retain any 12-hour continuing education training certificates, transcripts, or other approved proof of completion as described in WAC 388-71-0970(1) as long as the worker is employed.
