New Agreement to Provide College Credits for CEU programs

We have reached an agreement with Provider Management Education Services (PMES) of Portland, OR concerning new assisted living administrator training certificate programs they have developed. The two certificate programs (Introductory and Advanced) are online self-study programs, each totaling fifty (50) contact hours and made up of five 10-hour courses. After review of these programs, we find their course content to be excellent, and have agreed to grant three transfer credits for each of the 50-hour certificate programs.

This agreement is a first of its kind, and also involves the National Association of Boards of Examiners for Long-Term Care Administrators (NAB) who have granted CEU credit for the PMES programs and the American College of Health Care Administrators (ACHCA) who have endorsed the rograms in connection with its Professional Certification program.

Being part of this collaboration gives us national visibility and a tremendous marketing opportunity. For more information about the agreement or the PMES assisted living programs, go to
