DHS Announces Mandatory PCA Training

Break-Thru requires all PCA applicants to complete MN DHS on-line standardized training in order to provide PCA services and/or register for an individual PCA provider number.

We are so PROUD of our PCAs for successfully completing the state test and receiving their certificates! Congratulations on your professional development!

Break-Thru requires that a PCA provide proof of certification before a conditional employment offer will be made.

PCAs can go through the study guide that is available to them on-line and then take the test, or they have the option of taking the test without reviewing the study materials.  We strongly encourage PCAs to carefully review the study materials as they contain helpful information to reduce the risk of work-related injuries, inform you of your rights as an employee and provides you with information to ensure you know what is expected of you as a PCA as well as the consequences that result from not doing your job as expected.

MN DHS now requires all Agencies must ensure that individual PCA providers complete the mandatory training and pass the competency test as of May 1, 2014, to work as a PCA.

 

You will need to register here to view the materials and take the test: http://registrations.dhs.state.mn.us/videoConf/Default.aspx?BusinessUnitID=16

Once you have completed the test, please forward your certification notice to: dburke@breakthrucare.com  (please put “PCA Certificate” in the subject line)

If you do not have access to a computer with internet access, please call our office at 763.502.1505 to reserve time to use our PCA work station.

If you will need any accommodations with taking the test or using the computer, please let us know when you call.
