Department of Social Services, State-Wide Training Program

Programs for caregivers working in Virginia's Licensed Assisted Living and Adult Day Care Facilities

Developed jointly by the Virginia Department of Social Services, Division of Licensing Programs and the VCU Department of Gerontology, these training programs are made possible through the use of Assisted Living and Adult Day Care facility licensing fees. These programs are provided exclusively for employees of Licensed Assisted Living Facilities and Adult Day Care Centers in Virginia. 

Continuing Education Units (CEUs)

Each site will have the appropriate forms available for continuing education credit the day of the training. Mail the completed form and processing fee to the VCU Department of Gerontology, PO Box 980228, Richmond, VA 23298-0228. The deadline for requesting CEUs is two weeks after the last training date.

Online application and advance payment of CEUs will not be accepted during online registration for each training course.
