Citrus College offers a Home Health Aide program during the winter and summer intersessions. This program is approved by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH).

This 40 hour program is designed for current CNA's to expand their existing role to home care settings and home health aide agencies. The program consists of 20 hours of theory and 20 hours of clinical experience. Upon successful completion of this course, students will receive a certificate of completion from the program and will be certified by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) as a Home Health Aide (HHA).
