About Manager Training

For the manager program, the cost of the program is $495 ($125 testing fee and $100 program registration fee included).

The total required training hours is 40 hours. All 40 hours are done online currently during the COVID 19 Pandemic. If you are a full-time student, you can finish the entire program in as little as 2 weeks. If you want to be a part-time student, you are given 1 month maximum to complete the entire program, which means you must show activity at least 1 time a week to avoid suspension.

The prerequisite for the manager’s program is a valid form of ID, a copy of your Social Security card, an Arizona Caregiver Certificate obtained after August 2013 (unless you are licensed in Arizona as an MD, DO, RN, LPN, or Arizona Nursing Care Institution Administrator).
