Home Health Aide
Great Bay Community College is offering a Home Health Aide course in partnership with the Community College System of NH, US Department of Labor and local employers. This course provides the classroom instruction portion of the Home Health Aide Apprenticeship Program.
Apprentices are hired by an employer (also known as the “sponsor” of the apprentice”) from day one of their apprenticeship and receive wages from the employer while they learn a new occupation. A grant from the US Department of Labor provides scholarships for the tuition for the classroom portion of the apprenticeship.

As the baby-boom population ages and the elderly population grows, the demand for the services of home health aides and personal care aides will continue to increase. The median annual wage for home health aides was $22,600 in May 2016.
