Dementia & Mental Health Specialty Training can only be taught in a live classroom, NOT online. This training can be used to fulfill the 'Population Specific' requirement of the 75 hours of training required to become licensed as a Home Care Aide (HCA) in Washington State. If you work in an assisted living community or an adult family home you will most likely require this training. Click HERE for WAC 388-122-0165.
