This curriculum was developed by the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals/Health Standards Section, to train Direct Service Workers.
The Following Reports include all the hours that have been entered as of the date shown on the report. This will be updated regularly but must be done manually so it may not reflect all hours that you have attended. Normally it takes about thirty days to receive the sign in sheets and several more weeks to get those hours posted. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
