Caring4Cal courses are designed to accommodate a wide range of preferences and needs by offering various formats. Some courses are available online, providing participants with the flexibility to access course materials at any time or during set times, making it convenient for those with busy schedules. These online courses can also be self-paced, allowing participants to begin at their convenience and progress at their preferred speed. This adaptability in online offerings caters to the diverse requirements of healthcare providers and those aspiring to enter the field.

Caring4Cal also provides in-person courses that are led by instructors, offering a more traditional classroom experience for participants who prefer face-to-face interactions and guidance. This in-person format can be valuable for those who thrive in a structured, real-time learning environment. The choice between online and in-person courses gives participants the freedom to select the mode that best suits their learning styles and schedules.

Overall, the program’s emphasis on offering various course formats, in both online and in-person settings, ensures that Caring4Cal courses are accessible to a broad spectrum of individuals, including home care providers, community care providers, and and those interested in entering the home healthcare field. This flexibility aligns with the California Department of Health Care Access and Information’s (HCAI) mission to expand home healthcare access and promote effective and equitable healthcare delivery throughout California.
