The Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS), the Department of Economic Security (DES), and Area Agencies on Aging (AAA) require that Direct Care Workers complete DCW training if they work for an Arizona agency that is a registered provider for these state agencies.
This is not required for self-employed/self-directed DCWs, but it is valuable training and may make you more employable. For more information visit AZ Directcare.org
