New Certificate Program: Advanced Care of Older Adults

Developed by leading gerontologists and professional experts, the Advanced Care of Older Adults Certificate program offers licensed health professionals an opportunity to improve their care of older adults.

There are three specialized Certificates, designed to equip licensed health professionals with important geriatric knowledge and skills specific to their occupations:

  • Certified Nursing Assistants
  • Emergency Medical Technicians
  • Physical Therapy Assistants

Each Certificate includes an overview of aging, including common conditions, mental health, communication, ageism, caregiving, cultural issues, safety and legal issues, palliative/end of life issues and more.

The convenient online format allows health professionals to learn at their own pace, from any location.

Each Certificate includes approximately 12 hours of geriatric content, and participants have access to the course material for six months.
