Home Study and on-line MEPAP 2nd Edition, State Activity Training courses, and Continuing Education courses

Activity Director Certification Services offer home study and on-line courses for activity professionals seeking to become nationally certified or state qualified to work in nursing homes or, are in need of continuing education. The home study and on-line course formats are designed to allow the student to work at their own pace with hands on learning experiences at each student’s individual facility. Home study or on-line offers a convenient method of learning, especially for those who are unable to commute to the traditional classroom setting while allowing the flexibility to register at any time. No more waiting for a class to begin only to be canceled due to lack of student registrations, traveling to the classroom, or giving up week-ends. Students have easy access to the instructor through correspondence either by email or telephone and are encouraged to contact the instructor as often as needed.
