Volunteers who work directly with patients and families must complete hospice training. For accessibility, this 33-hour course is offered as both a daytime and evening series, as well as a summer intensive.
The course is free for volunteers. For others in the community who choose to complete the training for personal or professional development, there is a fee of $150.00. An application must be submitted and an interview must be completed prior to the start of hospice training.
