The PCA New Hire Orientation is a 4-hour program. Starting February 1, 2021, the Workers' Rights section of the orientation is being moved from the consumer led portion of the orientation to the 1199SEIU Training and Upgrading Fund (TUF) portion along side the Infection Control training that started on October 1, 2020 (Infection Control Training Flyer). Any PCA completing the orientation with their consumer on or after February 1, 2021, will need to complete the final 2-hours of the orientation with TUF within 30 days of completing the orientation with their consumer. PCAs will be paid 4-hours for completing the orientation only after completing both portions of the orientation. A memo from MassHealth about this change can be found here.
Below you will find the forms you need to complete and return to us to begin your participation in the FI program - and to make sure your PCAs get paid for the work that they do
