Core Training

ALF Online Core Training Program (FSLA201)


Description
Our training is expert-led, convenient and cost-effective.

Florida Senior Living Association’s ALF Online Core Training course, provided in partnership with and taught by Monica Wilson, is designed for prospective assisted living administrators and individuals interested in learning more about the daily operations of an assisted living community.

Learn from instructors with real-life field experience. Expert training is provided by experienced administrators and operations consultants including Monica Wilson, M.S., Donna Crivaro, R.N., and Kathy Nelson, RDN, LD/N. Current AL administrators and staff share Best Practice Tips.

The course includes a downloadable e-manual, interactive videos and knowledge check-ins, module quizzes, test prep questions, mobile app access, and email and phone support.

Learn on your schedule.

On-demand training in an online environment allows participants to complete the required core education on their schedule, within 60 days of registration. Please note that once the course is accessed, no refunds will be given. If you have an unusual circumstance that prevents you from completing the course within 60 days, a one-time short-term extension may be provided on a case by case basis.

Our instructor will work with you to help you stay on track so you can finish the course while retaining as much information as possible to successfully pass the ALF Core Competency exam, which we recommend you take immediately after course completion. Once you complete the course, you will receive a certificate of completion and we will let the MacDonald Research Institute know that you have completed the course.
