Home care agency operators have a new resource to help them meet training requirements for Arizona’s Medicaid ALTCS rules that will be implemented July 1, 2012. aQuire Training Solutions has created an online version of Arizona’s “Principles of Caregiving.” aQuire’s Arizona Direct Care Worker (AZDCW) course has met the criteria for an alternative curriculum for in-home caregivers.
“We have had the pleasure of developing this online training program with the assistance of Arizona Non-Medical Home Care Association (AzNHA) representatives,” comments Wendy Finch, VP Business Development of aQuire Training Solutions. “We can now offer an affordable option to the new regulations. It is critical that ALTCS providers have a training plan implemented prior to the 2012 deadline. aQuire’s support team can help agencies become approved with a blended online/in-person skills training program.”
The Arizona Non-Medical Home Care Association, a coalition of businesses dedicated to consumer protection and advocacy, has partnered with aQuire Training. “As part of our continued commitment to support our Members, as well as consumers of non-medical home care services in Arizona, we have teamed with aQuire Training Solutions (aquiretraining.com) to offer affordable, comprehensive training solutions to Arizona’s new Direct Care Workforce training requirements. We believe this training program will prove to be invaluable to our Members,” states Don Irish, AzNHA’s Executive Director. He continues,“Not only does this program offer cutting edge, internet based ALTCS training, it also entails considerable discounts to all AzNHA Members, a real win-win scenario.”
aQuire Training Solutions’ unique approach to training involves a process of telling stories to help learners synthesize content, engaging them in interactive online activities, using motivational strategies to help them grasp the significance of their work, and evaluating what they have learned through online assessments.
