Direct Care Workers: Continuing Education


Project Insight has implemented a continuing education program to enhance the quality of care our clients receive. All employees covered by the DCW initiative are required to complete at least 6 hours per year of continuing education (CE). The DCW training itself covers the first year of training. CE is to be completed and documented in every subsequent year.

Below you will find a list of training videos and resources. Please view as many videos or articles as necessary accumulate at least six hours. This does not have to be done all at once. When you have viewed a group of videos or articles please email Russell at info@projectinsight-az.com . List the date of viewing and the titles of all of the material reviewed. You will receive a confirmation email letting you know your current progress toward completion of the CE requirement.
