Please contact me to schedule a training session.
Participants will earn 7 CEUs*
*The NCCDP is accredited as an approved provider of continuing education (7 CEUS) by accrediting agencies and continues to apply for CEUS from other professional organizations. We recommend that you check with your governing body to verify if the continuing education hours will be accepted if not pre approved for CEUS. Our CEUS are only offered by the corporate staff at NCCDP. It is up to each trainer to submit with governing agencies course CEU approval. Ask your instructor if the seminar is CEU approved and which agencies it is approved by.
The Council was formed to promote standards of excellence in dementia and Alzheimer's Disease education to professionals and other caregivers who provide services to dementia clients. As the number of dementia cases continues to increase nationally and worldwide, there is a great necessity to insure that care givers are well trained to provide appropriate, competent, and sensitive direct care and support for the dementia patient.
