Here are opportunities to build skills, learn about new developments and network with colleagues.
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. A new PCA 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 2016 conference is scheduled for September 28 through 30.
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.

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.
