Additional reasons to enroll in our HHA Course and get certified include: higher pay and a larger number of prospective employers. A look at the impact of certification on each follows.
According to a recent USNews.com report, the Home Health Aide salary in the U.S. is approximately $20,610 per year, which places it near the bottom of the pay scale for all healthcare industry jobs. However, among the top 10% of earners (made-up almost entirely of CHHAs), the mean salary increases to $29,530.
The implication here is clear – certification has a tremendously positive effect on the earning power of home caregivers and is essential for anyone serious about a career in this field.
As was mentioned in the previous section, more and more states and home care agencies now require their employees to have a HHA certificate. Therefore, by becoming certified, you dramatically increase the pool of jobs for which you may be qualified.
