Over 800 hospices have purchased our materials for learning & competency documentation.
We are the HOSPICE TUTOR .
We developed our system of training materials to offer flexible solutions to meet the needs of both large and small Medicare certified hospice programs.
We offer a SYSTEM of study materials developed specifically for hospice volunteers, and designed to complement and work with your training processes.
Our Hospice Volunteer Training curriculum has been available nationwide since 2007. It is available on DVD, Video Portal and our latest E-learning Portal that includes on-line quizzes and system generated emails.

Independent study is not only effective and convenient, but an economical approach to core training. The savings are significant when compared to small class sizes engaged in classroom study. If using the DVD’s in class, you are still saving valuable staff time by allowing the Series to present the foundational information. You build upon this foundation, allowing your Team to spend less time in class, but accomplish the same outcome - volunteers prepared to serve. Download our Cost Analysis Form.
The volunteer chooses when to watch the training segments on their home DVD player or computer. For persons who may not own a player or have internet access, consider purchasing a loaner Manual for them to read, or allow the volunteer to watch the segments on your office TV at times that are convenient for them. Your volunteers will appreciate your flexibility and volunteer friendly attitude.
Implementing “on-demand” training results in new volunteers continually beginning their volunteer roles.
Patient care is a priority as staff are free from numerous hours of volunteer training
In order to attract younger, busier volunteers, hospices must find flexible ways to get them trained. Independent study as a portion of the training process helps meet that need.
Less travel time; gas expense and juggling class, family and work if a new volunteer can cover one part of their orientation as self-study.
Allow our Portal to cover the core information - the FOUNDATION. You then build upon that information through discussion, role playing, mentoring, stories, and examples through face to face interaction individually or in small groups. With the right community building activities and motivational experiences, you can spend less face-to-face time with the volunteer, yet build strong and enduring relationships because you are focused on doing just that, rather than trying to cover large quantities of core information. Let our program open more opportunities for getting to know the volunteer.
Our program can cover many of those hours. The 16 video instructional segments (DVD or On-Line) are 5.5 hours. The student Workbook contains competencies for each segment. If the volunteer spends 20 minutes completing the competencies for all 16 of the segments, they will spend about 5.3 hours engaged in this part of the learning process. 5.5 hours viewing time plus 5.3 hours completing the competencies results in about 10.8 hours of engagement before you add your hours of additional contact.
