It Takes a Village: Finding Training and Certification support through the Training Partnership's Navigator Program Project
It’s no secret that everything in life becomes easier when done with a support system. After all, who couldn’t benefit from a cheerleader who roots for you along the way or an advocate who provides support to catch you when you stumble? That’s why the recently implemented Training Partnership Navigator Program is music to the ears of Home Care Aides (HCAs) across the region.
In mid-October, a pilot project launched and was rolled out to all new HCAs in King, Pierce and Snohomish counties who were employed after Sept. 29, 2013. If the program proves a success, it may be expanded to reach all Washington state HCAs.
