All candidates must possess the required skills and education necessary to perform the job, have an uneventful driving record, a valid driver's license, and be able to pass a criminal background check and social services background check.
After a person is hired, in addition to meeting Langley’s high job performance standards, specific training classes must be completed within the first 180 days of employment unless otherwise noted. Please click here to see a list of required post-employment training.
Certification must be kept current, so there will be additional training required over the course of the staff member’s employment with Langley. Because the training is required under state licensure guidelines, instruction will be provided by or paid for by Langley.
