As effects of the pandemic remain uncertain, businesses and schools are doing their best to adapt to the new normal. Educational opportunities in particular are becoming more difficult due to spikes in COVID-19 cases seen around the country.
As more employees work from home, pursuing ongoing learning becomes more difficult. Telehealth and online methods of business communication are becoming the main forms of communication for many people.
If you’re in the healthcare field and looking to add to your resume, luckily there are options. The American Institute of Health Care Professionals (AIHCP) offers continuing education programs in a variety of areas.
You may be asking yourself, why would I want to get a certification now? The good news is that these continuing education courses are fully remote and increase your value as an employee. When deciding between potential job hires, a certification marks you as having an advanced knowledge and skill set. Being seen as an expert within the professional health care community might give you a leg up against the competition.
What Types of Courses are Available?
AIHCP’s continuing education and fellowship program offers course options that include but are not limited to:
- Case Management: Case management services facilitate a client’s health needs by assessing and implementing cost effective wellness care. A case manager generally advocates for a client and communicates with appropriate health providers based on regulatory standards and guidelines.
- Stress Management: With the current state of things, many people are going through increased bouts of stress and uncertainty. A stress management consultant offers high quality expertise and knowledge to those going through a rough time.
- Holistic and Integrated Healthcare: Not everyone is able to afford expensive medication or intensive therapy. A holistic healthcare specialist offers alternative methods to provide pain management and other therapeutic support systems to those who need it.
- Substance Abuse: Addiction and substance abuse affects over 21 million Americans. Treating addictive behavior requires specific, quality care and background knowledge on substance abuse.
Professional recognition for these and other certifications can be made to those who achieve Fellowship status. Prerequisites to enter into each course vary. Make sure to look at the FAQ section that matches the course you’re interested in.
For those who are working from home for the foreseeable future, online learning may be right for you. Online training is great when you’re unable to attend in-person training programs. It’s convenient, and gives you a competitive advantage. By investing in your education, you can assure that your efforts and work are fairly recognized.
