HCA/Home Care Aide Class Schedule:
Home Care Aide Classes by Visiting Angels. Looking to work as a caregiver in a long term care setting in Washington State? You will need to obtain an approved license. We offer HCA classes with an experienced, high-quality instructor. Additional information regarding Washington State’s HCA licensing requirements click here.
HCA Class is a total of 75 hours, which consists of 5 in-person classes (25 hours) +plus 50 hours of on-line self study. All classes must be completed in order to receive a certificate of completion. You must have a certification of completion in order to register for the State licensing exam (administered by Prometric). Our Tacoma classroom is a Regional Test Site Location, so you have the added benefit of being able to train in the same location that you will take your licensing test in.
