Home Care Aide is an I-BEST course

I-BEST means Integrated Basic Education and Skills Training. In this course, students will not only learn the skills to become a certified Home Care Aide, but they will also gain proficiency in reading comprehension, math, speaking and listening skills for health care and other basic skills. This will better prepare them to continue in Nursing Assistant Certified, other health care courses, or further course work in general.
