I have a question about training hours. I know that employees are required to have 15 credit hours per year. But, how does it work for new hires? Say someone is hired in August. How many hours are they required for that year? Thank You.
Thank you for your question regarding training hours. Please see the following chart describing pro-rated training hours for directors and caregivers in centers and faith-based facilities:
|January 1 – February 28||20 hours||15 hours|
|March 1 – April 30||17 hours||12 hours|
|May 1 – June 30||15 hours||10 hours|
|July 1 – August 31||12 hours||7 hours|
|September 1 – October 31||10 hours||5 hours|
|November 1 – December 31||5 hours||2 hours|
Blood Borne Pathogens must be completed yearly, even if the caregiver starts during the year. Thank you and please let us know if you have any further questions.
