If you are looking for a certified career path with great potential for employment, then a non-profit coming to Clermont County and offering expanded low cost education may hold an answer for you.  Mercy Neighborhood Ministries is bringing their Home Care Aide Training Program (H.C.A.T.) classes to UC Clermont. 

The three-week class will run Feb. 5 – 22.   This R.N. instructed class is an approved certificate program by the Ohio Department of Aging and will certify the graduate for a position with a Home Health Agencies statewide.  Classes run from 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. Monday-Friday with 85 hours of HHA training on site.
