CBRF Classes

CBRF classes

Enroll in our state-mandated community based residential facility (CBRF) classes.

Whether a CBRF (assisted living facility) presently employs you or you desire to enhance your resume, we welcome you to enroll in any of our classes. If you are currently employed by a CBRF, they will most likely cover the class fee so be sure to ask before you register.

Do I need to be a CNA to work as a caregiver in an assisted living facility?
No, you do not need to be a certified nursing assistant (CNA). Of course, CNAs are welcome to apply for assisted living job openings, and they might receive a higher wage due to their certification.

What are the job duties of a caregiver in an assisted living facility?
While responsibilities vary by employer, assisted living caregivers (resident assistants) typically help residents with personal cares, medication administration, meals, activities, housekeeping, laundry, and more. If you are a compassionate person with good communication skills, thrive on multi-tasking, and enjoy working with people of varying abilities, becoming a resident assistant may be the perfect fit for you.

CBRF Class Requirements

  • Standard Precautions, Fire Safety, and First Aid and Choking classes are online live learning. The state requires students to be on a device with internet access, a camera (turned on), and a microphone to visibly and audibly participate in the online live learning. Class meets in real time online so attendance is required for all scheduled hours of the class.
  • Most CBRF employers require age 18+ to work as a resident assistant/caregiver. If you are under the age of 18 and plan to work in a CBRF as a resident assistant/caregiver, check with the CBRF employer prior to registering for a CBRF class.
  • Your seat in the class is not guaranteed until your payer source is confirmed.
  • Attendance is mandatory for all hours of the class.

Price includes $20 state registry fee and class materials.

  • Standard Precautions Class $70
  • Fire Safety Class $95
