Initial Certification Training Program (ICTP)

What is the RCFE Initial Certification Class?

California’s Community Care Licensing Division (CCLD) requires that all administrators in a Residential Care Facility for the Elderly (RCFE) have a standard certification. The RCFE certification requires 80 hours of training prior to taking the State exam. You will be taught the Core of Knowledge standard set for by California regulations.


Our training consists of live webinar and 20 hours online at home, as approved by the State of California. We recommend that you start the online section as soon as you enroll as it must be completed prior to the end of the live classroom training.

How many days is the RCFE Administrator Initial Certification class?

You can start the 20 hour online section as soon as you register. The online section must be completed prior to the last day of the live section.


The 60 hour live section of our Initial Certification course is 6 days. Each live day begins at 8 am and ends at 5 pm. The day is 9 straight hours, no lunch break, and short periodic breaks are provided.


This class is provided as a webinar.
