Cardinal Institute for Health Careers

Personal Care Aide (PCA) Course

Personal Care Aides are special people. They provide important care and services to the elderly and disabled. With the assistance of a trained PCA, individuals can remain safely in their homes and enjoy a better quality of life. 

Home care and home health agencies are looking for qualified PCAs to employ. The need for PCAs is expected to increase dramatically. 

Cardinal Institute for Health Careers offers Personal Care Aide (PCA) courses during the day, in the evening, and on the weekends. Our 40-hour course is approved by the Virginia Department of Medical Assistance Services (DMAS). With your PCA certificate, you will be able to be employed by the local Home Care and Home Health agencies that provide services to Medicaid and Medicare clients.
