Who is required to complete manager specialty training, or eighteen hour developmental disability caregiver training, and when?

Adult family homes
(1) Adult family home applicants, providers, entity representatives and resident managers must complete manager specialty training or developmental disability caregiver training, and demonstrate competency before the home is licensed or before a new entity representative or resident manager assumes the duties of the position in order to admit or serve residents who have special needs related to mental illness, dementia, or a developmental disability.
(2) If a resident develops special needs while living in a home without a specialty designation, the provider, entity representative, and resident manager have one hundred twenty days to complete manager specialty training or developmental disability caregiver training, and demonstrate competency.
Assisted living facilities
(3) If an assisted living facility serves one or more residents with special needs, the assisted living facility administrator (or designee) must complete manager specialty training or developmental disability caregiver training, and demonstrate competency within one hundred twenty days of date of hire. An assisted living facility administrator with a current nursing home administrator license is exempt from this requirement, unless the administrator will train the facility's long-term care workers in a specialty.
