New Colorado Assisted Living Residence Owner/Operator Online Training Course Launched

Colorado Association of Homes and Services for the Aging (CAHSA) announced today the release of the first online training course approved by the state for new owners and operators of Assisted Living Residences in Colorado. Completion of this training is required by the state Department of Public Health and Environment Health Facilities to own and operate an assisted living residence in the state. This course marks the first time that the course has been available via the internet.

Oregon City, OR, March 28, 2008 --( “Being able to access this course online will be a great relief to individuals who live in outlying areas and have difficulty coming to a classroom course,” notes Laura Landwirth, Executive Director of the CAHSA. “Most assisted living professionals are extremely busy, and traveling to a central area for classes can be quite challenging – not to mention costly. This online course offers them – for the first time – the ability to learn at their home or office, at a pace that works for them.”

The course is being offered through a cooperative agreement with the Institute for Senior Living Education, an e-learning provider of online courses for senior care professionals throughout the US.

“We’re very pleased to be able to support the online learner with this new Colorado course,” says Sharon K. Brothers, MSW, President and CEO of the Institute. “This course complements our new Administrator training for Texas Assisted Living professionals as well as other continuing education courses we provide through ( It is a perfect fit for our focus of offering quality online courses for senior care professionals, from administrators, nurses and managers, to direct care providers.”

Courses for direct care staff are offered through the Institute’s aQuire Training Solutions, (, a website that just received the Award of Excellence for senior care staff training programs.

“Online learning is beginning to soar in the country, especially for adult learners who are busy caring for their families, while trying to advance their careers,” comments Brothers. “We’re very excited to be a part of this culture shift, and to offer such high quality courses as this Colorado training course online.”
