Continuing Education for Renewal of Assisted Living Facility Manager Certificate
In response to the Arizona Department of Health Services Administrative Order 2020-01 (Emergency Measures for COVID-19), due to the circumstances, three major in-state continuing education conferences went from an in-person presentation to virtual or online format, making it difficult for assisted living facility managers to complete the in-person continuing education renewal requirement.
The following temporary waiver of in-person continuing education requirement will allow on-line continuing education training while the Declaration of Emergency is in effect.
1. The in-person continuing education requirement for assisted living facility manager renewal is waived to allow credit for online courses that are approved by the Board, NAB or ACHCA. (R4-33-501(C)(1).
All other renewal requirements will remain in effect.
What does this mean for you? You can complete all your CEU requirements by registering for our online and Zoom based CEU courses.

NCIA Board Approved Continuous Education Units (CEUs)
Arizona Medical Training Institute provides both eLearning and classroom CEU options. eLearning CEUs allow the Licensed Assisted Living Facility Manager to obtain 40% of their required number of CEUs essential for license renewal online. All classes, whether classroom based or online, are registered with the NCIA Board and cover topics of interest that benefit both the ALFM and their business.
Documenting Your Continuing Education
The new rule (R4-33-501(E)) requires administrators and managers to maintain records of their continuing education for three (3) years. Certified Managers should ensure compliance with this rule. However, AMTI will also maintain copies of all completed CEUs in your student file.
The NCIA Board will send out renewal notices in February. They will randomly select a percentage of managers to audit for compliance with the continuing education (CE) regulation for renewing a certificate. You will get the audit notice with the renewal form. Along with returning your renewal application, the NCIA Board requires you to submit documentation showing your completion of the required 24 hours of Board approved continuing education within the required time period. You can rest assured knowing that your AMTI CEUs have all been licensed by the NCIA Board. Your certification of completion includes the NCIA Board license number, your guarantee of compliance!
CE Course Compliance
The NCIA Board requires that a minimum of 60% of approved courses be taken through classroom instruction. The balance can be taken online or through correspondence.
If you need all 24 NCIA CEUs to renew this means 14 must be taken in-classroom, while 10 can be taken online. * This requirement has been waived while the emergency order is in effect so our online, Zoom based courses can count for the in-classroom CEUs! You couldn’t make a better choice! AMTI provides both in classroom and online programs to help you meet your NCIA Board requirement.
R4-33-501. Continuing Education Requirement
Continuing education is a prerequisite of your license renewal. A certified manager shall obtain 24 hours of Board-approved continuing education during each biennial period. During the biennial period in which a manager is initially certified, the manager shall obtain one hour of Board-approved continuing education for each month or part of a month remaining in the biennial period. No more than 40 percent of the required hours may be obtained using self-study, online, or correspondence courses.
