COMMUNITY MEMBERS CAN ATTEND ONE OF THREE NEW INFORMATION WORKSHOPS ON THE PERSONAL CARE AIDE CERTIFICATE COURSE
Community members interested in gaining job sills in an accelerated time frame can attend one of the three upcoming information workshops on the Personal Care Aide (PCA) course. SCE’s PCA course is designed to prepare students to provide or support activities of daily living, personal care, and homemaker services to elderly and disabled individuals needing assistance to remain safely and independently in their own home or in a care facility. The course is free, but students must qualify. Upon successful completion, students will receive a certificate of completion.
The employment outlook in the PCA field is good. The number of Aides is expected to grow much faster than the average growth rate for all occupations. This is due to the aging of the population and the increasing number of people who want to remain in in the familiar surroundings of their home.
The PCA Information Workshop will provide students information on the eligibility criteria along with an overview of the PCA Program, the registration process, and the employment outlook. Students are encouraged to attend one of the following Information Workshops:
* Wednesday, 3/28/12, 10:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m. at Anaheim Campus-Room 105
* Wednesday, 3/28/12, 6:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m. at Anaheim Campus-Room 105
* Thursday, 3/29/12, 5:00 p.m. -6:00 p.m. at Anaheim Campus-Room 101
All workshops will be held at the Anaheim Campus (1830 W. Romneya Drive, Anaheim, CA 92801). Please be on time; latecomers will not be admitted. This is a four-week course starting on April 9, 2012 and runs Monday-Thursday from 9:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. For more information, call 714-808-4915.
Opportunities for adults with disabilities will be promoted at the Disabled Student Programs and Services (DSPS) of the North Orange County Community College District’s School of Continuing Education (SCE) annual Transition Night, held this year at 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, March 20, 2012 at the Anaheim Campus (1830 W. Romneya Drive, Anaheim, CA 92801).
Members of the community are invited to attend this free event to learn more about the independent options for living, working and attending educational programs for adults with disabilities. Special presentations will be made on experiencing college life, SCE’s mobility (transportation program) and job preparation courses, independent living skills, protection and advocacy for adults with disabilities. A workshop will also be presented on how individuals can access services and what to do if access is denied.
SCE student ambassadors will provide tours of the campus and program classes as well as hosting a student art exhibit, career exploration tables, and a “Dress for Success Fashion Show.”
Vendors from over 40 community agencies will also share information including those with independent living and house programs, social security, transportation agencies and education programs, including Cypress College and Fullerton College.
