It appears that caregiver training has become a very political issue. I still get calls, however, from clients and students who want business coaching and specific guidance. I can still teach you Care Home Business Strategy, I just don't have authorization to give you a Wa State sanctioned certificate for that.
If you're looking for WA State caregiving classes, I think your best shot is to connect with Robin VanHyning. She accomplished what I'd been asking the state permission to do for years... getting the trainings online and approved by the state. She also has trainers in local areas of the state for the hands on skills testing.
Here's her contact information: (Please do tell her I sent you!)
