Who is required to complete specialty training, and when?

If an assisted living facility or adult family home serves one or more residents with special needs, long-term care workers in those settings must complete specialty training and demonstrate competency.
(1) If the specialty training is integrated with basic training, long-term care workers must complete the specialty training within one hundred twenty days of hire.
(2) Long-term care workers who are exempt from basic training must complete the relevant specialty training within ninety days of hire.
(3) Until competency in the specialty training has been demonstrated, long-term care workers may not provide personal care to a resident with special needs without direct supervision in an assisted living facility or in an adult family home.
