In Home Assistant (IHA)


Independent Study class now being offered
 The 40 hour IHA course satisfies the training required by Arkansas law for caregivers who are paid to provide care for a person who is 50 years of age or older. IHA training includes basic home safety and personal care. IHA graduates can obtain employment:
  • with home care agencies,
  • with assisted living facilities, or
  • as independent, private-pay caregivers of persons in their homes or in other long-term care settings.
[NOTE that additional training is required to challenge the state’s Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA) exam.]
