The PCA Orientation Program was established by the collective bargaining agreement between the State of Connecticut PCA Workforce Council and SEIU District 1199 NE. Attending a PCA orientation is a condition of employment for any PCA hired on or after January 1, 2015. PCA’s will have 90 days from their hire date to attend an orientation. The PCA Orientation Program is a 3-hour long session, held across the state at 15 different locations.
The orientation will cover:
- Understanding Independent Living Principles
- Operational Procedures of the Connecticut PCA Program
- Recognizing and Reporting Fraud, Abuse, and Neglect
- Workers’ Rights
Orientations are held most weeks on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday. Mornings, afternoons, and evenings are available. You may register for an orientation online below. If you have any difficulties when registering, please feel free to call a member of our Enrollment Specialist Team.
