Community Care Educational Services (CCES) provides training programs for administrators and staff of Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly (RCFE).

We deliver courses that meet California State requirements, while also giving you the practical knowledge needed to administer outstanding community care. Our classes are led by a staff of licensed professionals, including a physician and a registered nurse.

Live classes are not being held during this pandemic by this provider but we have approved online classes available for both RCFE and ARF for recertification or continuing education.


CCES in this SOE during COVID-19 pandemic is not offering any live classes but online classes are available.

o    Continuing Education or Recertification Training are available online during the State of Emergency only . Administrators can complete all 40 hours of continuing education training through CCES online classes only.

o Administrators may opt to take all 40 hours online while we have the State of Emergency through the expiration as set forth by California Department of Social Services or through the duration of this emergency, whichever occurs first.

o Courses cannot be repeated for credit within the same renewal period. RCFE administrators still need to meet other course requirements, such as eight (8) hours of dementia training, four (4) hours of laws and regulation training, and one hour of LGBTQ training (if not already completed).

o All courses must be Department-approved courses provided by a Department Approved Vendor.

A list of Department-Approved Vendors can be found on the Administrator Certification Section homepage:
 No more than 10 hours of training can be taken daily.
 All recertification requirements must be met prior to the Administrator Certificate
expiration date to avoid a delinquency fee.
