Join us July 16-18, 2019 for this 3-day, in-person, training course! AANAC’s RAC-CT program has long set the national standard for skilled nursing facility PPS and MDS education. More and more employers are requesting RAC-CT certified applicants in their jobs postings as it has become the mark of professionals who are committed to their career and residents.

Constantly reviewed and updated by a team of experts, the Resident Assessment Coordinator—Certified (RAC-CT) program program will help you to distinguish yourself as a valuable asset to any long-term care organization. In this program, you will immerse yourself in clinical assessment and care planning, completion of MDS, and the regulatory body surrounding the RAI/MDS process. This workshop will also incorporate a PDPM course (while eliminating the PPS and RUGs IV courses).

If you are waiting to take RAC-CT, you are missing out! The curriculum has already been updated with PDPM information, so you and your team will be ready come October 1, 2019. AANAC hears your reluctance, but know they have you covered. AANAC will provide you with all the updated coding modules once the RAI User's Manual is final.

      3-DAY COURSE:

      • MDS Coding for OBRA and PPS, parts 1 and 2
      • OBRA Timing and Scheduling
      • Care Area Assessments
      • Introduction to Medicare Part A
      • Care Planning
