Administrator in Training (AIT)

NCSLA is proud to be a provider of the Administrator Certification program, approved by the North Carolina Division of Health Service Regulation. The 120-hour program includes 16 hours of classroom instruction, 4-6 hours of independent study and a minimum of 100 hours working with an approved AIT preceptor at a licensed facility. The NCSLA program is designed to give the serious candidate an overall knowledge of the assisted living industry and a unique, practical understanding of what it takes to be a successful administrator. An added quality of our program is a review of Medicaid operational procedures and systems to assist new Administrators working in communities that provide care to residents approved for Medicaid benefits.

"All of the information I gathered."
