An entity that wants to train and test DCWs must become an Approved Training and Testing Program (Approved Program). PLEASE NOTE: Direct care service agencies can decide whether or not to become an Approved Program or delegate the responsibility of training and testing DCWs to an Approved Program through a contractual agreement.
Entities that can become Approved Training and Testing Programs are:

  •  An AHCCCS registered agency that provide Direct Care Services
  •  A private vocational program
  •  An educational institution (e.g., high school, college or university)
