Hang on.

If you are planning to look after your mother 24/7, why do you need the formal certification? Whose requirements are you having to meet?

Not saying it's not a good idea anyway; but who would be paying you, and what are their criteria?

If you Google PCA, you will get plenty of results. Pick, say, three-to-five course providers you like the look of - preferably ones local to your state - and check them out thoroughly before you commit yourself to anything. Or, you could approach your local Social Services and see if they can recommend a provider. But for heaven's sake don't pay anyone any money for training or certification without being certain that they're reputable.

Each state has their own process. Your profile doesn't say what state you live in. Some states let you get certification online, but without knowing where you are...since you have computer access, do a search for Getting PCA certification in (whatever your state is).
