CARE Specialists are professionals who have gone through a rigorous selection and training process. What sets a CARE Specialist apart is the unique 360° CARE Model that extends beyond being a training tool. Specialists are trained by experts in the Healthcare sector, and are equipped with skills that ensures that they deliver client-centred care of the highest quality. It also creates a learning environment that shapes confident specialised caregivers with interpersonal, critical-thinking, and personal care skills.
CARE Specialists go through a mandatory 165-hour course that covers competencies, using adult learner-centered methods.

Why CARE uses competency-based training?
Content of this curriculum is based on CARE’s analysis of the competencies that direct-care workers need in order to provide personal care services to care recipients, in whatever setting they reside. By competency we mean:
- The capability to apply or use a set of related knowledge, skills, and abilities required to successfully perform “critical work functions” or tasks in a defined work setting.
- The value of using the term competency is that it brings the focus on what someone needs to objectively know and do in order to perform a job proficiently. It takes the emphasis away from classroom hours and passing tests and puts the focus on on-the-job performance.
