TORCH is pleased to offer 
Certified Assisted Living Management Courses
for Assisted Living Professionals


Session Information

TORCH offers Certified Assisted Living Management courses in three different sessions.  To see which sessions you might need to meet a certification requirement, see our Certifications page.

Additionally, we offer a Startup Boot Camp training for new owners and managers, covering the basics of getting a new facility established, and a Marketing Clinic to help you keep your beds filled.  

Certified Assisted Living Management Course:  Session Contents and Options

Session I

 — 8-hour training on the Texas licensing standards. This course includes updates and proposed changes to the licensing standards. Legislative changes are also covered.

Session II

 — 16-hour training on management of assisted living facilities. This course covers the State’s required content for management training. Training topics include: resident characteristics (including dementia), resident assessment and skills working with residents; basic principles of management; food and nutrition services; federal laws, with an emphasis on the Americans with Disabilities Act’s accessibility requirements; community resources; ethics, and financial management.

Session-CE (continuing education session)

 — 12-hour continuing education seminar. Managers who only need the annual 12 hours of continuing education should attend Session-CE. Session-CE includes the 8-hour regulations class (Session I) and four hours from Session II (the management course). Combining the eight-hour course and attending from 8 a.m. until 12 noon the following day gives managers the 12 hours of continuing education they need to satisfy the State’s annual requirement. In addition to reviewing the licensing standards, hearing about updates and legislative changes, topics may include: emergency preparedness, resident characteristics, Alzheimer’s disease, managing disruptive behavior, marketing tips, and abuse/neglect/exploitation.
