The Institute for Professional Care Education (IPCed) is a national training and certification company for the caregiving professions.

Caregiver Certification matters, because Certified Caregivers:

  • Have foundational training and skills in providing care
  • Understand issues like elder abuse and how to detect or prevent it
  • Know the value of their observation and reporting skills in keeping their clients out of emergency care and hospitals

Employers use our nationally recognized certification programs to train new care staff; offering families peace of mind when hiring someone to assist with a loved one’s care.

Certifications also provide a way for your care team to increase skills and grow professionally, while providing a marketing advantage that sets your company above your competition.
