Changes are in the wind for AL administrators in Florida. SB 316 would make it mandatory that there is a certification program in place for AL administrators, and that training will need to include dementia training. Effective date July 1, 2014.
Additionally, it also provides for the enforcement of additional training under certain circumstances for direct care staff.
Currently it has cleared committees and the report is waiting to be written.

Some things to be aware of:
- This does not change the requirement for Level I and Level II training as designated by the DOEA.
- Relias does not provide certification programs at this time
