How It Works

  1. Pre-training: Online Course (3-4 hours)

    Before your virtual training begins, you must complete an online curriculum, which includes an introduction to Dementia Capable Care. You will review course content, explore CPI modules, and learn important facilitation strategies to maximize your training. You will receive an invitation to complete the online course approximately 10 days before your virtual training.

  2. Instructor Certification Training (1 Day)

    New or recertifying instructors will attend 1 day of live virtual training.


    Renewal Training (1 Day)

    Existing instructors will attend 1 day of live virtual training.

    Under the guidance of a Global Professional Instructor (GPI), you will learn a common framework for Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, a best-abilities perspective, dementia stages, behavior management, and care techniques to promote the best ability to function. The Instructor will train and assess these skills, as well as assess your competency in the overall program through teach-back exercises.

    Upon completion of your training, you will be equipped to teach the core principles and techniques of Dementia Capable Care to your colleagues. Your live virtual training will be conducted on the date listed above.

  3. Online Certification Exam (1 hour)
