Initial Certification Training Program ARF

is a 35-hour course that prepares you to become an administrator of a residential care facility for clients ages 18-59.

The first step in opening a facility is to become a certified administrator. California law requires that every facility that provides care and supervision to disabled adults must be operated by a certified administrator. To become a certified administrator, you must complete the Initial Certification Training Program ARF from an approved vendor. On completion of the Certification Training Program  , the next step is to take a 50 question test at the Community Care Licensing office. On passing the test DPSS/Community Care Licensing will issue you your Administrator Certificate.
Certificate: Certificate issued on last day of class.

Your course purchase is nonrefundable and non-transferable to another person. If you cannot attend the course credit will not be issued for a future course. All sales are final.

The Regional Center has it’s own application process that is separate from Community Care Licensing. Regional Center also requires that you attend a special orientation at their office. There are 21 Regional Centers in California. The Regional Center contracts with you to provide a specific level of care. There are different levels of care ranging from Level 2 through 4 with many sub levels.

Each Adult Residential Facility vendored by a regional center is designated to provide one of 4 service levels. Levels refer to facilities, not clients.

Facility Rates by Level 2019
Service Level 1: Limited care and supervision for persons with self-care skills and no behavior problems.
Service Level 2: Care, supervision and incidental training for persons with some self-care skills and no major behavior problems.

Person Centered Planning
Working with developmentally disabled individuals requires a philosophical shift from the traditional medical model of care. Historically individuals with a developmental disability have been treated like children placing the care provider in the role of parent. Services were recommended and implemented by physicians, social workers and family, friends and care providers.
