Adult Family Care Home Initial Training



Welcome and thank you for considering purchasing this online Adult Family Care Home Initial 12 Hour Core Training.



(a) All AFCH providers must attend a 12-hour basic adult family-care home training program which covers the minimum requirements of Section 429.75, F.S., prior to accepting any residents, or for providers who already have persons residing in the home that will be considered residents, prior to licensing.

This online training is offered by Shery Stockstill who approved by the Department of Elder Affairs to teach the Core Training course required by this rule.  

A Message from the Instructor

I believe that purchasing this course will be a great decision and let me tell you why.

This online course is designed so you can work at your pace and is available for up to 2 months.  This allows you to focus on areas that need more time and attention.  This course offers many quizzes to help you better understand the many rules and regulations.  You can retake the quizzes as many times as you like without any penalty.  We only require a score of 50% in order to pass the quiz and advance to the next module.  In all, this course consists of almost 100 questions which will help you become a better AFCH operator.  We also offer many great videos and audio recordings which I’m sure you will love.

I am available by phone or email with any questions you may have.  Once again, thank you for considering the purchase of this course.
