A dozen employees at PointClickCare have earned the Certification for Assisted Living Administrators (CEAL) designation. CEAL is a national certification program designed to enhance the capabilities of assisted living administrators.

The CEAL course is a combination of interactive classroom training, guided self-study and dedicated hours for hands-on clinical learning. Following the four-day training course, candidates complete the National Association of Long-Term Care Administrator Boards.

Not all states require certification for assisted living administrators. CEAL has aligned its program curriculum with the NAB Residential Care/Assisted Living Administrators Licensing Examination so that certified assisted living executives meet national competency standards, and are well positioned for any future changes to state RCF administrator requirements, the company said.
