(10 clock hours)
This course is designed to provide the continuing education required for the Certified Aide (CAU) to maintain certification.
Aides will have one year from the date of their aide certification expires to take the update course. If the course is not taken within one year of the certification expiration date, the entire aide course must be retaken. An individual must be 18 years of age to be certified as a aide. This requirement does not restrict individuals’ ability to enroll in a aide course. Health Occupations Credentialing will no longer issue certification cards for nurse aides, home health aides or aides. Any required certification information is available on the Trinity Nurse Aide Registry at Trinity. There is no federal or state requirement that an individual possess a physical certification card only that they are listed on the state nurse aide registry with a certification which is active and with no prohibitions.
Refunds are calculated from the last date of recorded attendance and are based upon the following policy statement.

The effective date is the date on which the college receives notice of the student’s intention to withdraw from College or the date on which the student violates college policy providing for termination or the date the student fails to return from an approved leave of absence, whichever is earlier.
All refunds are issued via check only and said student must pick up from campus location with picture ID.
