Employment Horizons is pleased to announce the development of the Education Initiatives Department. This department will house our new Certified Home Health Aide Training Program and our Culinary Arts Training Program. The goal of Education Initiatives is to create new and exciting training opportunities for people with disabilities and other barriers to employment, providing access to different community job placements. We will create new training programs in the future, providing more avenues for career success for individuals seeking employment.
The Certified Home Health Aide Training Program (in partnership with Assisting Hands and made possible by a grant from The Provident Bank Foundation) seeks to train participants for careers in the high demand healthcare field. Our program is unique in that we go beyond the state mandated 76 hour training to also provide First Aid/CPR certifications, basic culinary knowledge, and our highly regarded job skills counseling. Classes in this program will begin soon, with more information available in the fall.
Our Culinary Arts Training Program is available to current participants in our Vocational Rehabilitation Services program. Click here to learn more about our Culinary Arts Training Program.
