A new class of 100 senior living professionals has earned the Senior Living Certification Commission’s certified director of assisted living credential, the group has announced.

A total of 433 assisted living executive directors have completed the program since its launch in 2016.

The SLCC’s CDAL program was developed by practicing subject matter experts in senior living and is based on the knowledge and skills needed by executive directors as identified through an extensive job analysis. Certification is meant to demonstrate attainment of consistent, relevant, measurable and industry-recognized standards of practice in the assisted living executive director role.  

Successful completion of the CDAL exam is one of the requirements for attaining certification. April 17 is the registration deadline for the March 12 to June 1 testing period. Professionals may apply at anytime at slcccertification.org/register.
