How do I become an Administrator?

Becoming a Certified RCFE Administrator is easy with Care and Compliance Group. The first step is to register for one of our certification classes. Use the calendar at the bottom of this page to find a class near you.

After you have attended one of our RCFE Administrator Certification classes you must take and pass the state exam. The final step is to submit your application to the Department of Social Services to receive your certification.

Do I have to meet certain qualifications?

To become a Certified RCFE Administrator you must meet the qualifications outlined in regulation 87405. This includes being at least 21 years of age; having a high school diploma, GED, or equivalent; and having the knowledge and ability to meet regulatory requirements and provide care and supervision. Administrators in communities of more than 15 residents must meet additional education requirements.

What is an RCFE?

Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly (RCFE) provide care, supervision and assistance with activities of daily living to persons 60 years of age and over. RCFEs may also be known as assisted living communities, retirement homes and board and care homes. They can range in size from six beds or less to over 100 beds. The residents in these facilities require varying levels of personal care and supervision.



How do I open an RCFE?

The facility licensure process is different from the Administrator Certification process. Think of it this way: the Administrator (person) is certified, the facility (building/property) is licensed.
