Welcome to our brand new Avail Academy!
This online school will allow you to complete your 40 hour home health aide (HHA) certification so that you can begin working in the field of private duty personal care.
What’s it going to cost me?
We aren’t charging for access to this service, but it’s only available to those who are working with Avail or who plan to be.
How do I get started?
To get started we have to create a login for you so the best way to start the process is to fill out our online application (Click Careers in our menu) if you’re not already working with us, or to contact our scheduler/office manager, Samantha St Marten if you are working with us. To reach Samantha, call 727-437-0280.
What Comes Next?
Once we have added you to Avail Academy, you’ll receive an email inviting you to login. Once you login you will see a list of 40 One-Hour courses. You must complete all of the courses, but you can do it on your own schedule. Once you’ve finished all 40 courses and we’ve completed the other steps in your hiring process, you’ll be ready to be added to our roster and take shifts. What’s more – you can use the certificate of completion we will provide to work in any position available to HHAs.
Do I have to go to a center or location to complete training?
Nope. The entire thing is online. You will need to come in at some point to get the printed copy of your Certificate.
Can I work with Avail Home Care?
We are SO GLAD that you asked! Yes, you can work as one of Avail Home Care’s independent caregivers. Adam (see above) can tell you all about it. Our available shifts are growing leaps and bounds everyday! If we don’t have work that will fit your needs today we will tomorrow, so we recommend that you join our roster so we can start offering you shifts. If you haven’t already taken this step, please visit our Careers page to fill out an online application and to view the checklist of required documents we’d need to have to get you started.
Are you a franchise?
Nope. We are 100% locally owned and grown. We live in the community just like you. This is our home and we care about the people here, including you.
