A Certification for the Elite in Assisted Living Management

Is CEAL Right for You?

Are you an experienced assisted living executive looking for a competitive edge in the marketplace?

Are you interested in obtaining the necessary skills to successfully lead an assisted living community in Ohio or, even possibly, nationwide?

Then CEAL is the certification for you!

Ohio CEAL is a comprehensive certification program designed to elevate the skills and professionalism of assisted living administrators in Ohio by combining national competency standards along with Ohio's most comprehensive state-specific training.

While the state of Ohio does not require a certification or license to be an administrator of a residential care facility (RCF), several states do require their assisted living administrators to be licensed. Therefore CEAL aligned its program curriculum with the National Association of Long Term Care Administrator Boards (NAB) Residential Care/Assisted Living Administrators Licensing Examination thereby allowing credentialed assisted living executives in Ohio to meet national competency standards.

Obtaining the Ohio CEAL will empower you to excel in the profession you love. And it will enhance your distinction within Ohio's growing and competitive assisted living marketplace.

Become part of the elite within Ohio's assisted living profession.

Begin the process today.
