This 18-credit certificate can be completed in two semesters.
NTC realizes there is an untapped market in entry-level caretakers for healthy aging and home care. It will not only improve the pride that entry-level employees have in the work they do, but will carry over into job loyalty and professionalism. A workforce that can assist in healthy aging and close the healthcare gap that currently exists, we can increase quality of care and employee retention in a field that traditionally sees high burnout and high turnover rates.
The Gerontology & Aging Care Certificate prepares graduates as health care paraprofessionals or offers a pathway to advance an academic career in other health- and social services-related fields such as social work, nursing, medical assistant, activities director and more.
