California Requirement for Coordinators- Help I'm Lost

Recommended Posts

I attended College and received 72 hours of Activity Coordinator Training and was awarded a certification of completion.


I went for an interview on Monday, and Wed. During both of these interviews I was asked if I had completed the 24 hours of required training.


After leaving the second interview, I wondered....  


Does my certificate cover the "required by law/state agency/ 24 hours course"  they are talking about?


Is there some higher power (State Agency) that I was so post to forward my certificate to or take additional test, training hours, etc?


Who is it that is the entity that is actually requiring anyone to hold a Activity Coordinator Training Certificate?


Do I need CEU's? Are they required by anyone other than AC/AD professional organizations that are not required by law/licensing that I can join only if I wish?


I was up until 2:30 in the morning searching for the answer on the internet (btw- this is how I found this website) this morning I spent several hours on the telephone going around in circles trying to find the answers.

916-552-8700 (licensing certifying board of California) nothing

916-322-2760 referred to another number800-807-6755 on hold and in the cue for over an hour, then when it was my turn... Disconnected

916-651-8848 no agent here either, and after pressing number after number I still did not get any info

211- referred to EDD..

EDD, go on line, nothing there regarding Activity Coordinators

714-567-2906 Public Health/Licensing for SNF--entity that completes state surveys, THEY REFERED ME TO GOOGLE "ACTIVITY COORDINATOR/DIRECTORS FOR THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA"


I am frustrated, and back to exactly were I started yesterday!


Can you help?


incase this thread gets lost, my personal email is iairbrushu@yahoo.com


Thank you,

Dawn Livesay, LVN, AC

     Thank you for correcting the information that was released. I recently took the test for certification with NAAPCC and it was a very comprehensive and thorough test. It was not a simple easy test to get you certified. You had to know the information in order to complete and pass. I would recommend this avenue to anyone especially if finances are a struggle for MEPAP I & II. I did purchase the book for long-term care seventh edition and without that I would have struggled.

    Celeste is awesome!! Anytime i have a question she gets right back with me and she is very informative. At first I didn't know if i was going to like the new course just for the fact my MEPAP course was the own pace and I work Full time plus have 3 kids. But i am loving it! It is very structured and with due dates I feel like i am holding myself more accountable for completed assignments sooner than later. It has actually been a beneficial change for me.. Thanks so much!!!

    Good Evening I wanted to let you know that I had completed mepap 1 and had only a couple weeks left of mepap 2 so I had looked at path 2 and have taken the activities test and passed so just sending in the application. I wanted to thank you for giving all your time to us even while Kathy was ill. It didn't go unnoticed, you was a great support and helpful at ideas or even different ways of changing thoughts to positive while feeling defeated. Thank You Stacey Passa AP-BC
