Caregiver Certification

Students, potential caregivers, and volunteers seeking work as caregivers can now take an online, self-paced program that results in a Certificate of Completion — all at no cost to the user. Developed by ARCH National Respite Network and Resource Center, the course builds the knowledge and skills required for becoming a paid or volunteer respite caregiver in New Mexico. Training includes specific instructions for locating respite care opportunities within our state. This 7-hour course focuses heavily on care for service to persons with developmental abilities.
