15-hour Assisted Living Administrator Training

Penn State Lehigh Valley is pleased to partner with Penn State York to offer a 15-hour Assisted Living Administrator Training!

According to 55 PA Code Chapter 2800, prior to employment as an Assisted Living Administrator, you must take this 15-hour training program in addition to the 100-hour Personal Care Home Administrator training and exam.

You must be a certified Personal Care Home Administrator with the State of Pennsylvania to participate in this training. These hours count towards yearly CEU requirements.

Assisted living administrators manage, outline and coordinate services geared toward older adults who may require assistance with eating, bathing, taking medication and other basic functions. They oversee the day-to-day operations of the assisted living facilities and ensure that all staff are providing the best service possible.

Administrators must take a state-approved course or program and pass an exam in order to become licensed.

Penn State York is an approved provider by the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services (formerly the Department of Public Welfare).
