    A Message from the Instructor

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

    The State of Florida and the Department of Elder Affairs require new administrators take a 26-hour course and also pass a state exam.  All courses offered by ALF Core approved trainers meet this requirement; however, the topics covered require much more time to fully understand.  The administration of an assisted living facility is not easy and there are many regulations that must be met.

    When we took the ALF Core Training we took it on site and the course lasted a quick 4 and 1/2 days.  Take it from me, this was not enough time to cover some of the difficult subjects in detail.  This online course is designed so you can work at your pace and is available for up to 4 months.  This allows you to focus on areas that need more time and attention.  The on-site training we took had no quizzes and nothing to prepare us for the state exam.  When we designed this course, we wanted this to be an area of focus.  Most modules offer quizzes to help you absorb the material better and like the state exam, some of the questions are tricky.  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 over 280 questions which are also compiled into a final exam. The Final Exam is a great resource for you and only requires 1% correct to pass and receive your completion certificate.

    In addition, the consulting package is everything you think you’ll get from core training.  How to start, operate, and grow your assisted living facility.  Our objective was to offer this package at the same price other trainers were selling basic ALF Core Training.  Other trainers will NOT tell you all that we do in this package.  That is simply a fact.  If you don’t believe me, be sure to ask them if they tell you how to get residents, what are the start-up and operating costs, or where to buy insurance.  Most instructors will tell you that you need to purchase their consulting services for THOUSANDS of DOLLARS$$$$$$.  Trust me! I know this from experience.
