The Manager’s Curriculum Training class offers an opportunity for participants to gain, refresh or deepen their knowledge in the art of leading and managing a Supportive Living community. The training offers a wide variety of information specifically designed for SL and is taught by a variety of industry leaders with the most current information in their field of expertise. The enrichment of the learning comes from each class participant and their willingness to explore and share their own experiences, thoughts, challenges, and knowledge.
The class will cover the following key SL topics:
- Financial Management
- Resident Care
- Resident Social Services
- Environmental Services
- Food Services and Regulations
- Standards of Operations
- Managed Care
AALC developed the course with Department of Healthcare and Family Services (HFS) as a substitute for the minimum qualifications to be a SL manager (5 yrs. of healthcare & 2 yrs. of management experience). HFS has agreed to accept as a qualified SL manager anyone who completes this course and has at least 2 years of healthcare experience. No prior management experience is required.
The course consists of a classroom component (60 hours) and a second component where students go on-site and work with a certified SL community manager. For those existing SL managers who take the course as a refresher or to deepen their knowledge, can be given an exemption on the on-site component.
