Education and Training

PCA provides training for its own staff and for others in the aging network throughout the year.  Among the offerings are training in behavioral health; serving diverse populations; management coaching; grant-writing; CPR and First Aid; and office skills including Microsoft Word and Excel.

PCA’s 2017-18 Agency Training Catalog is Now Available to PCA Staff & the Aging Network!
A new Agency Training Catalog is published every year in August. Most courses are given twice a year, in spring and fall. Registration is required, and is open, space permitting, until the first session of the class. Classes are free of charge; enrollment is on a first-come, first served basis.

In addition, PCA hosts the Regional Conference on Aging every fall. The 2017 conference was held September 27-29.

There are many other conferences and training opportunities for professional development held locally and across the country to help those in the aging field stay current, and increase their knowledge.

Networking for Young Professionals

GenPhilly is an informal  network of emerging professionals from a broad range of disciplines – aging, the arts, education, health care and business, among others. The group provides creative programming and professional development opportunities, and works to change stereotypes about aging and to establish Philadelphia as a lifelong community for all of us.
