National Assisted Living Administrator Certification Slated For Pre-licensure Training
OKLAHOMA CITY, Jan. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Assisted Living Administrators work a dynamic career where two days are rarely the same and they make a difference every day in the lives of older Oklahomans and their families. Since Assisted Living Administrators are now required to be licensed, the Oklahoma Assisted Living Association is hosting the National Assisted Living Administrator Certification, January 21-23 at Rivermont Retirement, 800 Canadian Trails Drive in Norman.
The course which has been offered by OKALA since 2004 requires participants be at least 21 years of age and provide verification of high school graduation or equivalency. Students should register for the class as soon as possible and receive the curriculum by mail to begin preparing for the class. The course costs $695 and the application is available at www.okala.org.
Recent changes in Oklahoma law have increased the requirements for working as an administrator to include licensure which requires completion of an approved training program such as this one, and passing both the NAB exam as well as the Oklahoma State Standards test. The OKALA training is a comprehensive overview of every aspect of operations for an administrator. It is comprised of three manuals, a three-day seminar to review the material with working professional administrators as instructors, a workbook on Oklahoma regulations, and a new online workbook to prepare for the NAB exam. Once complete attendees will receive national certification recognized in over 13 states. This class is also slated to begin in March, July and October in 2013 in Oklahoma City and Tulsa. If you have further questions about certification, please feel free to call OKALA at (405) 235-5000.
