I signed up and made the best decision I've ever made. CertifiedCare is the best comprehensive program around. It's hard to improve on the best!

Debbie S., CertifiedCare Professional Personal Care Aide

I would like to express how CertifiedCare has really paid off for me. Being "certified" means more employment in my field and more wages. Within 3 days of passing the exam, I had my frame worthy certificate and have gone on to get a new fabulous job. DONT KNOW WHY I WAITED SO LONG!

Sueann W., CertifiedCare Family Personal Care Aide

I am looking forward to strengthening my knowledge and confidence about caregiving. Thank you for establishing your company and offering a valuable resource.

Mary R., CertifiedCare Professional Personal Care Aide

Your certification program is a blessing to me and my new career.

Hollie H., CertifiedCare Professional Personal Care Aide

I would suggest investigating CertifiedCare as a very good source for caregiver training. It is a strong choice in this area.

Dan Kacerovskis, CSA │National Account Manager, Society of Certified Senior Advisors

Finally I did it!!! This is a great program, Thank you so much!!!

Dahaiana R., CertifiedCare Family Personal Care Aide

I felt that after learning about the program it was the best fit for the single working mom that I am! 

Christina B., CertifiedCare Professional Personal Care Aide

As the Executive Director of an Assisted Living Facility, I highly recommend all of the online courses. 

Elizabeth H., CertifiedCare Professional Personal Care Aide

I love this. It is the best thing I’ve done (besides my 3 kids) in my 62 years of life.

D. Statland, CertifiedCare Professional PCA

I am doing this to not only better myself and hopefully give more peace of mind to potential clients and/or their family, but also, in order to help your organization to further your cause since 100% of profits are going back into working on more regulations/legislation in this matter.

Our Purpose:

To influence, establish and uphold higher standards of care for older adults nationally and internationally through advocacy and education.

At CertifiedCare we understand that caring for an elderly person is NOT like caring for a child.

CertifiedCare was established in 2008 as a Personal Care Aide certification organization in Ohio, USA. CertifiedCare was formed for the purpose of raising awareness of and reducing the incidence of elder abuse and neglect through education. We meet our purpose by educating, testing and certifying family and professional Personal Care Aides in dozens of areas relating to the proper care and non-medical treatment of frail elders, the developmentally disabled or chronically ill adult. Our programs are available 24/7 in 193 countries (if you have access to internet then you can use our programs).


CertifiedCare executive leadership has been a proactive voice for caregiver support and education as well as the fight against elder abuse for many years by drafting state legislation and providing advocacy at the state, federal, and global level.
