I chose CertifiedCare after much research on the internet.  I wanted to learn valuable information at a reasonable cost.  I chose correctly! I am thoroughly impressed and would recommend the program to anyone.

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!

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.
