Homecare Training

Logo of Homebridge.

Homebridge is a valued partner in the San Francisco Homecare Services Continuum. Homebridge is the Public Authority's trusted ally in providing training for all IHSS Providers on our Registry and for our On-Call Provider team. The Public Authority and Homebridge unite in advocacy efforts for Consumers and Providers across the IHSS Continuum.

All Registry Providers must attend Personal Care Assistant Basic Training as part of becoming an IHSS homecare Provider. The training takes place at the Public Authority, but is taught by Homebridge in Spanish, English and Cantonese. Training is free and you will be paid $400 when you complete the training. Here are the training descriptions and schedules.

All Providers are also encouraged to gain additional skills through free, paid training at Homebridge. Here is the course schedule.
