RCFE Initial Administrator Certification

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Mike and Robin cannot offer LIVE, in-person initial RCFE administrator courses. However, DSS is allowing a LIVE STREAMING version of this approved course. Students must view a mandatory 60 hours on a computer, tablet or phone. ALL 60 hours must be viewed and be verified. An additional 20 hours (80 total hours) are home study sent by email. It is recommended to download the Zoom app before viewing for better viewing assistance. Do not use Internet Explorer as it is unstable.

PLEASE REGISTER AT LEAST 5 DAYS IN ADVANCE TO RECEIVE, BY MAIL, A PRINTED COPY OF TITLE 22 AND HEALTH AND SAFETY CODE!!

The 80-hour initial administrator certification course covers all subjects required by state laws and regulations for an individual to become a certified residential care facility for the elderly (RCFE) administrator. All classes are subject to availability and prepayment guarantees space. If one or more days cannot be attended, then arrangements must be made to make up the missed day or days at another location (or date). However, if the dates of attendance are over 30 days apart, and Title 22/Health and Safety Code was updated, a nominal charge may be required to obtain the recent laws and regulations. The 80-hour class involves attendance of six, 10-hour days at a live course (or live streaming), and completing 20 hours of “home study” or emailed materials. Classes are from 8 am to 6:20 pm. Students arriving 15 or more minutes late will NOT be admitted via new vendor provisions enacted by DSS. 

RFCE is not responsible for students’ internet connections, computers or other devices’ reception.
