Certified Assisted Living Administrators

Applying for an Assisted Living Administrator Certificate

To be certified as an Assisted Living Administrator, you must complete the assisted living training course, and pass the Assisted Living Competency Examination within two years of successfully completing the course. Applicants also must complete a criminal background check.

Certificate Renewal

The certificate is valid for three years. During that time, on a schedule to be determined by the New Jersey Department of Health, you must apply for renewal of current certification. To be eligible for renewal, you must complete at least 30 hours of continuing education regarding assisted living concepts and related topics and complete a criminal history record background check. If you fail to complete the renewal requirements at the prescribed time, your certificate will be considered inactive.
