    Home helpers must obtain more stringent licenses (Japan)

    Home helpers must obtain more stringent licenses



    Yomiuri Shimbun

    Home helpers offering care in private homes and public and private facilities will be required to obtain government qualification as nursing care workers in the future, a Health, Labor and Welfare Ministry source said Saturday.

    The measure is aimed at providing improved service, the source said.

    Home helpers study only 50 to 230 hours to obtain a license, while nursing care workers must train for 1,650 hours before taking a national examination.

    Let's see...24 hours x 28 years (or 29, I forgot), is that enough hours?
