250+ Senior Living Professionals Committed to Career & Industry

March 21, 2017 | James Balda

250+ senior living professionals committed to the industryThe Senior Living Certification Commission (SLCC) has announced a list of 252 senior living professionals who have earned their Certified Director of Assisted Living (CDAL) credential.

The dedication exhibited by these professionals demonstrates not only a strong desire for personal and career growth, but also a steadfast commitment to strengthening and elevating the future of the assisted living industry.

With a burgeoning aging population, workforce development remains a critical imperative. Professional development programs and opportunities such as those offered through the SLCC are essential to cultivating competent, experienced, and trained employees who can provide the best quality of care to those we serve.

I continue to encourage those within the industry who believe they are eligible for certification to register and sit for an upcoming certification examination.

The CDAL examination provides a mechanism to measure judgment, application of knowledge, and problem-solving abilities. It is comprised of questions in the following knowledge domains: Principles and Philosophy of Assisted Living, Resident Care and Services, Customer Experience, Leadership, Operations Management, Regulatory Compliance, Sales and Marketing, and Financial Management.

Applications for the CDAL certification and registration for the spring testing period for the certification examination are currently open. Successful completion of the exam is one of the requirements for attaining certification through the SLCC. April 15 marks the registration deadline for the testing period taking place this spring from March 1 – May 31.
