Smart Seminars is approved to provide the Initial Certification for ARF and Recertification for ARF, RCFE, GH, and STRTP. All of our approvals are current and up to date. You can view them below:
How Do I Renew My Administrator Certificate?
Complete 40 hours of approved courses and mail your certificates along with the Application for Administrator Certification to ACS in Sacramento.
The ACS section now allows all 40 hours of renewal to be completed as either online courses or webinars. See page 8 of Provider Information Notice.
Regulation Course Requirement
The ACS section requires that in every renewal you must complete 4 hours of course content that is approved as a regulation course. A regulation course may be any content in Title 22.
There is no such thing as The Regulation Course. We offer four approved regulation courses:
Food Service 4 Hours Online Course
Clearance Exemptions 4 Hours Online Course
Medication Compliance: Live Course 5 Hours
Bon Appetite: Live Course 5 Hours
All of our online packages include a 4 hour approved regulation course.
When will the same course be a duplicate and not accepted?
When the administrator submits two or more courses with the same
approval number. This means you could take a course titled Behavior
Intervention from three different providers or even the same
provider. Since each course has a different approval number all three
courses would be accepted.
Can I take the same course with the same approval number I completed in a prior term.
Yes you can take the same course you took in a previous term again in a new term. Each time you renew your administrator certificate courses you took in prior term are not reviewed, considered or relevant.
What about the One Hour LGBT Course. Do I have to take the LGBT course each renewal?
No the LGBT is a one time requirement. Take it one time and you never have to take it again. If you had the one hour LGBT course in the Initial Administrator Certification course you never have to take it for renewal.
What about the HIV Course?
The HIV AIDS TB course is a licensing requirement for ARF administrators every two years. That means it is not a CEU renewal requirement. You can renew your administrator certificate without it. However, when you facility is audited by licensing they will look for proof that the administrator has 3 hours of HIV and one hour of TB training.
