PROCARE HEALTH TRAINING ACADEMY

Procare Health Training Academy’s short courses are open to healthcare professionals and facilities who wish to upskill and promote their own employment opportunities within the healthcare sector.

The quality of our care is determined by the quality of our staff

Procare Health Training Academy was instituted in an answer to address skill shortages among newly appointed nursing staff in the healthcare environment. Our development programme is professional, continuous, and extensive, and proven successful in developing the competency and experience to deliver confident, capable healthcare staff to our clients in the healthcare sector.

We facilitate lifelong learning, enhancing patient care and its outcomes; thereby adding true value to our clients, healthcare users and the employees who render the health care services.

Upskill with Procare Health Training Academy

Our small but dynamic team of specialists are passionate about training and upskilling healthcare staff, so we offer nurses and other healthcare staff lifelong learning opportunities through accredited and non-accredited courses at the Procare Health Training Academy. In so doing, we enhance the quality of care rendered to the patient and, because we are constantly upskilling our own staff, we also offer added value to our clients.

Do I need to show ID at the polls?


No. Unless it's your first time voting at a new polling place. If it's your first time voting at a new location, you must bring one of the approved forms of identification on this list. Your ID doesn't need to be a photo ID, there are many forms of non-photo ID that are acceptable.




Where and When should I vote?


You can vote by mail or in-person. How you vote is up to you, but it's important to make a voting plan as early as possible. To vote in-person at your polling location, you must vote between 7:00am and 8:00pm on Election Day. As long as you are in line to vote by 8:00pm, you will be allowed to vote, no matter how long it takes. Find your polling location or visit VotesPA.com for more information on voting in-person. To vote by mail, you first need to apply for a mail-in or absentee ballot. For the general Election, your application must be received by the Montgomery County election office by 5:00pm on Tuesday, October 26th, 2021. Apply to vote by mail and get a step-by-step guide to voting by mail at VotesPA.com.




Can I vote in person after requesting a mail-in ballot?


If you change your mind and want to vote in person after being approved for a mail-in ballot you can bring your ballot & the envelopes to the polls with you. You will give your ballot & envelopes to a Poll Worker and they will void it for you; enabling you to vote in person. The Poll Workers will be able to tell who has requested a mail-in ballot, so if you forget to bring your mail-in ballot & envelopes with you so that it can be voided, you will be given a provisional ballot to complete at your polling location. This ballot will only be counted once it's verified that your mail-in ballot has not been received by the Election Board.




When are ballots being mailed to people who applied to vote by mail?


Ballots for the 2021 general election will be mailed in October to voters who apply to vote by mail.




I received a mail-in ballot application but want to vote in person, what do I need to do?


If you receive a 2021 Mail-In or Absentee ballot application and want to vote in person, you can simply dispose of the application. No further action is required on your part. You will be able to vote in person on a standard ballot at your assigned polling location on Election Day. Ballots are only mailed to registered voters who apply for them. If you have already received your ballot and decide that you would rather vote in person at your assigned polling location, you can bring your ballot & the envelopes to the polls with you. You will give your ballot & envelopes to a Poll Worker and they will void it for you; enabling you to vote in person. The poll workers will be able to tell who has requested a mail-in ballot, so if you forget to bring your mail-in ballot & envelopes with you so that it can be voided you will be given a provisional ballot to complete at your polling location. This ballot will only be counted once we verify that your mail-in ballot has not been received by the Election Board.




Why was my mail-in ballot application declined?


Applications can be declined for a few reasons. Here are the most common: Duplicate - It means that your application was already recieved. So, if you apply again, it will be considered a “duplicate” and rejected. This does not cancel your previous application. Incomplete address – Voter is registered in Montgomery County but the address on their mail-in application doesn’t match their Voter Registration. Click here to update your voter registration. Not registered – Voter is not currently registered in Montgomery County. Click here to register to vote.




Can I drop off a family member’s ballot?


No. Similar to voting in person, you are only able to cast your own vote. You cannot collect, drop off or deliver ballots for other people. If you know a voter who has an illness or disability that will prevent them from dropping off their ballot, they can designate an agent to pick up or drop off their ballot. The agent can only pick up/drop off for voters who are in the same household. The ballot can be picked up at one of the Montgomery County elections office locations and returned to any office location. Click here to access the form.




Where do I return my mail-in ballot?


Voters can return their ballot through the mail, a secure ballot drop box, or voters may return their voted mail-in ballots to a county election office during that office's business hours, click here to find the Montgomery County election office locations. Ballots must be returned before 8 pm on Election Day.




I'm registered as an Independent. Can I vote in the general election?


Yes, you can vote in the general election on November 2.
