Activity Directors course offered at RCCC | Schools
SALISBURY - Rowan-Cabarrus Community College will offer a training course for persons wanting to be state-approved activity directors at long-term care facilities.
Rowan-Cabarrus will offer the 60-hour, state-approved course 6 to 9 p.m. on Monday and Thursdays, Sept. 6-Nov. 19. The class will meet at the Rufty-Holmes Senior Center, in Salisbury. The course registration fee is $175, plus a textbook costing approximately $60.
“If you are interested in a career as a state-approved activity director for nursing homes, this is the course you need. You will learn about state and federal regulations, how to plan and implement activities, and various other duties that encompass the activity profession,” said Tim Cornelison, instructor for the course with numerous years of experience.
With baby boomers aging and a probable increase in those requiring long term care, the need for qualified professionals is expected to grow at an unprecedented rate. Skilled professionals are needed to design and implement activity programs to enhance the physical and mental health for older adults and people with disabilities in long-term care facilities, as well as in community-based centers and programs promoting health and wellness.
Participants will learn about state and federal regulations, how to plan and direct activities, and various other duties included in the profession. Access to a computer and computer skills will be necessary for this class. The course includes hands-on and classroom instruction. Students must complete at least 25 hours of hands-on training.
