ACHCA strives to provide outstanding educational opportunities through national and regional conferences and workshops, independent study programs, NAB-approved webinars, and through our partnerships with providers that align with our mission.

Since 2012, has been providing online, continuing education for nursing home administrators and assisted living administrators with NAB approved courses.  Our self-study programs are all evidence-based and cover a wide range of topics.  We currently offer 76 different courses making up just under 200 hours of education and add at least one new course every month.  Once you pass an exam, you instantly obtain your certificate and we auto-report completions to NAB to make completing your CE easier.  Unlike most other providers, we have a live, US-based support team to help with any questions you have by live chat, email, or phone.  Learners can pay per course at $16 per contact hour or sign up for a membership that gives them unlimited courses for $199 for an annual year (exclusively discounted to $169 for ACHCA members only).  

Learner Directed Educational Activities (Self-Study Programs): ACHCA provides NAB-approved webinars to our voting members. 

Using learner evaluations of the self-study programs, learner survey results, applicable identified trends, and new long-term care research results, ACHCA determines how the information from these multiple sources can be utilized in future programming. The ACHCA volunteer Education Committee assists staff in recommending educational products or programs that they believe present pertinent, quality information for learner-directed programs. Education Committee members also assist our educational efforts by writing self-study post-tests for books recommended for continuing education credit.

To earn CE credit, all self-study programs require the participant to pass a Post Test (70% or above is a passing score). ACHCA adheres to strict guidelines from the CE approval agencies when writing Post Tests. All those submitting a Post Test for grading must also complete a self-study program evaluation form.  Members must log-in to access the webinars

Education Station

The Education Station is an online streaming video education subscription service created to assist long-term care facilities in maintaining compliance with the required mandatory education for new hires and for all staff every year facilities.  The online service was developed by Barbara Speedling, a regular contributor to ACHCA's webinar educational offerings. 

National Conferences and Meetings (Live Presentations):

The educational activities for ACHCA's meetings and annual conferences are organized as a series of presentations and workshops. Each workshop is scheduled for a specific length of time, with learner objectives, teaching methods, and continuing education credits/units (CEs) conforming to agencies requirements. Conference/meeting attendees may choose their educational programs from a list of sessions. ACHCA lists the NAB Domains of Practice and ACHCA Core of Knowledge categories for certification that each session fulfills on the Certificate of Attendance form that all CE recipients receive with their registration packet. Click here for event information.
