Ivy Tech Community College is now offering a free Patient Care Attendant (PCA) course.

The offer comes in response to much-needed support of long-term care facilities in Indiana. When completed, students can assist long-term care residents with basic needs such as feeding assistance, dressing and more.

Ivy Tech will provide the five-hour classroom portion of the PCA class virtually through Zoom, while the long-term care facilities will be responsible for three hours of skills training and check-offs on-site.

Individuals must register through a long-term care facility to attend training. For more information, email Martha Moody at
