We have already educated ourselves with a plethora of learnings about a home health aide in the previous sessions. Now, let us tackle about the Home Health Aide Certification Classes, its scope ad its duration. Many are wondering why obtaining a hha certificate is just done in a short period of time. Other healthcare workers who need to accomplish a solid 4 years to complete their degree so that they can qualify to work in the medical field. In the case of doctors, they need to study beyond 4 years in order to work in the medical field. It is confusing to think why such certificate can be gained in just a number of days.
As you may know,a hha certificate is required for employment. It is obtained through undergoing a comprehensive exam and practical training. Basically, the knowledge that are taught in the program serves as a recap and preparation for the actual healthcare scenarios. The number of hours required per state varies but it usually ranges from 75 up to 100 hours for a person to complete the training. But the question here is “Why is it easier and faster to obtain a HHA Certificate rather than the other requirements to work in the healthcare field?”
Obtaining a Certificate
- The process is shorter in gaining the said certificate because it only covers the basics of the healthcare. Considering the scope of knowledge and skills that has to be taught to those who enroll in the program, the duration of the training is faster. Come to think of it, if the training will take too long, there will be a possible redundancy and incompetency of the individuals and they will experience lesser pressure during the training which is not the ideal scenario because they have to be trained with pressure in order to get used to a healthcare setting or in order to prepare them for the actual hospital scenario.
- Obtaining a certificate is easier. Considering that a person enrolls in the program, it is assumed that he or she is interested and passionate in learning things about healthcare. Since it is something that they like to do, it will be easier and more convenient for them to acquire the needed knowledge and possess the competitive skills to finish the program.
There is a need to proportionate the time allotted for training and the scope of lessons that has to be taught because in order to save time. The health care setting needs more individuals as the number of patients are increasing day by day. It is imperative to save time in order for more individuals to qualify for work and take care of patients professionally. However, that doesn’t mean that there is a need to rush. It is just that those who enroll for the training already have the background knowledge in the medical field. That just means they are already loaded with knowledge, information and skills to take good care of the patients in a professional way.
