Bureau of Residential Facilities Licensing

Training

The Department will be offering provider trainings to help providers understand the rules, the licensure process, and maintaining compliance.

We will be continuing to update the training schedule. Keep checking back to find out the latest trainings ADHS has to offer!

There will be a series of 3 main trainings:

  1. Basics of Residential Licensing
  2. Licensure Process
  3. Maintaining Compliance

Basics of Residential Licensing

This class will be for anyone who may be considering opening up a facility and not sure what they want to do. This is intended for people who have not yet submitted an application as the application, fees, and application timeframes will be reviewed.

Licensure Process

This class will cover preparing for an initial inspection. It’s intended for providers who have submitted an application and have not gotten their license yet. The class will start with all subclasses together and then will break out between Assisted Living and Behavioral Health to cover specifics in the rules. The Ombudsman will make an appearance to discuss the Ombudsman program as well.

Maintaining Compliance

This class will be a high-level overview of the rules, discussions about the top 10 deficiencies, review of the survey process, what is contained in Service Plans/Treatment Plans, completing POCs, and trends in Enforcement. This is intended for any of our currently licensed providers.
