Education and Training

The NCBAC™ recognizes the importance of proper training for staff members who provide dementia care and the professionals who train them. In keeping with nationally recognized accreditation standards*, the NCBAC™ does NOT require (nor recommend) any particular course of study as a requirement for taking either Certification Exam.

We now offer the Alzheimer Caregiver and Educator Guides as complete training programs for individuals that work in the home or for facilities and agencies in Long Term Care. In compliance with the aforementioned accreditation requirements and standards, the NCBAC™ will NOT require our training program (nor any other specific program(s)) as a requirement for Certification.

This course can only be purchased with the CAC Exam. CAC candidates will have 90 days of access to the Guide, or until the exam is taken (whichever comes first).

  • The Alzheimer Educator Guide is a 12-module online training program that includes the 8 modules included in the Caregiver Guide, with additional modules covering Adult Learning.

*According to ICE – the Institute for Credentialing Excellence (formerly NOCA, the National Organization for Competency Assurance) - accrediting standards “Professional or personnel certification is a voluntary process by which individuals' pre-acquired knowledge, skills, or competencies are evaluated against predetermined standards. The focus is on an assessment that is independent of a specific class, course, or other education/training program. Participants who demonstrate that they meet the standards by successfully completing the assessment process are granted the certification.”
