New LTC Apprenticeship Program

Posted Oct 5, 20222 min Read

AHCA/NCAL is partnering with Equus Workforce Solutions to offer long term care apprenticeship programs. The goal is to get more people engaged in the long term care profession as it battles a workforce crisis. The AHCA/NCAL and Equus collaboration will help to support the development and expansion of Registered Apprenticeship Programs (RAPs) that can potentially impact our long term care provider members and those they serve in the future.
According to Equus, some of th​​e many RAP benefits include building a pipeline of skilled workers, gaining workers with customized skills, and enhancing employee retention and employer reputation. If you are interested in learning more about and participating in this apprenticeship program, please contact Dana Ritchie at​.
