Personal Care Home Administrator Training

Personal Care Home Administrator Training

Fulfill your required training at a convenient, low-cost location.

Penn State delivers continuing education for health care professionals who are preparing to become personal care home administrators and/or administrators and direct-care staff who must meet continuing education requirements.

In addition, individuals who are providing elder care for family members will find several or all topics to be of value and are welcome to attend these courses.

Our programs address issues surrounding personal care homes as well as the responsibility to provide safe, humane, comfortable, and supportive residential settings for adults who don't require the services in or of a licensed, long-term care facility, but do require assistance or supervision with daily living activities and other physical and mental life skills.

All individuals who completed the 100-hour standardized department-approved administrator training course after January 31, 2009, must successfully complete the orientation program for new administrators and a competency test with a passing score in accordance with 55 Pa.Code § 2600.64(a)(3) (relating to administrator training and orientation).

In addition, current administrators must complete at least 24 hours of training related to job duties. All direct-care staff must complete 12 hours of training.

Penn State is an approved provider through the Department of Human Services Bureau of Human Services Licensing under the Personal Care Homes Licensing Regulations as of April 23, 2005, published in 55 Pa. Code Chapter 2600 (35 Pa.B.2499).
