What is an assisted living manager?

Assisted Living Managers create policies and practices that ensure proper resident care, and create an environment that is safe, comfortable, and meets the needs of residents and their families. Duties include managing the building, employees, and services in accordance with regulations.

Where do assisted living managers work?

An Assisted Living Manager oversees operations at a residential care facility.

How do I become an assisted living manager?

CGTI’s Assisted Living Manager class is 40 training hours of classroom learning and prepares you to take the exams to obtain the certification required to work as an Assisted Living Manager in any care facility or home in Arizona. Be ready to take the exams in as little as five weeks!

What does the course cost?

Included in the cost is tuition, administrative fee ($150, nonrefundable), Arizona Assisted Living Facility Manager Candidate Handbook, CGTI Assisted Living Manager Textbook, and the State Management Exam ($125 value).

Upon course completion, you’ll be eligible to take a State Management Exam, which is included in CGTI tuition. After a student passes that test with a 75% or higher score, they can then sit for the board exam. The NCIA Board Exam is an additional $300 (not covered by CGTI) and separate from the State Management Exam.
