Our New Caregiver & Educator Courses are Now Available
For over a decade NCBAC has offered a Certified Alzheimer Caregiver (CAC™) and Certified Alzhemier Educator (CAEd™) Certifications as credentials showing that the certificant has completed a level of basic competence. This newly updated training is excellent preparation for the CAC™ and CAEd™ exams. Caregivers and Educators may prepare for the certification exams by taking the training courses. The online Caregiver course consists of ten modules and has just been updated to reflect new information in a number of areas. Voice narration has also been added.
Updates in the training courses include:
- voice-over narration of all content
- color slides with animation
- updated content on medications
- additional content on the roles and responsibilities of the caregiver
- additional content on legal and ethical issues
- additional case examples.
Questions are included at the end of each module to test learning. These questions are written in the NCLEX style of writing items. A Glossary of Terms and Reference Guide are also included for students.
The Educator course features two courses in one. The first four modules are dedicated to the techniques of teaching adults with special insights as to how they learn. The remaining modules are the complete Certified Alzheimer Caregiver course. Along with the practice quiz questions in the Caregiver course, there is an exhaustive quiz covering the Adult Learning components.
CAC™ and CAEd™ Candidates may purchase the new Caregiver Course and new Educator Course while applying for either exam.
