Home Health Aide Training

The Academy was very happy to collaborate with #Community Learning Center of Cambridge in training 16 woman of various backgrounds as #Home Health Aides at Cambridge Rindge and Latin High School.  The Program, funded by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE), is a combined English/Math/Home Health Aide Training.  The students were from Somalia, Haiti, Cape Verde, Morocco,  Ethiopia and Taiwan.  Many of the students are Muslim. The class occurred during Ramadan, which is a fasting month for Muslims.  Despite this challenge, the attendance of all students, including those who were fasting, was near perfect.  Every student knew and apppriciated the opportunity to take this job training program.  They were engaged in the training, came to class prepared, and asked appropriate questions.  We will have a second DESE funded training in 2017. This next class will be English/Math/ Nurse Assistant Home Health Aide training.
