More about the training
What you need to know about the requirements listed above is that we will be there every step of the way.
You will be paired up with one of our licensing coordinators that can address all the concerns and make the necessary arrangements for the required courses you need to complete. The coordinator will provide you with the available times and places for the classes required.
After successfully completing the courses, passed all the inspections and are well on your way to obtaining your ADH license, you have to know that all that work you put into it is only good for one year.
We're sure the first thing that comes to your mind is; Do I have to do this all over again next year?
The answer is no. This is where continued trainning comes in. You will also be happy to know that most of the continued education can be done directly from home in front of your computer. An hour worth of trainning is referred to as a point or sometimes a credit. So for example, 10 hours of continued training will amount to 10 credits.
These credits are not optional, and in order to keep your ADH license current, you are required to complete and submit the certification outlining the amount of credits completed to DDD on yearly basis. We will provide you with options to phisically attend classes if you don't have the means to do it electronicly. We will also remind you ahead of time when these credits are due. Also since you subcontract with Among Family, we will submit the certificate/s along with all required documentations.
To ensure you are in good standing with your ADH license, the above steps have to be completed each year in a timely fashion. Failling to do so, can result in suspension of your license or more drasticly the loss of your license. For obvious reasons, in the event that you do loose your license, the whole process has to be completed from the beginning.
We feel it is important for you to be aware of all this, so there is no confussion or be faced with the reality that no one ever told me!
