Assessment & Care Planning Trainings Schedule

Virtual MDS-HC and Care Planning Trainings


MDS-HC assessment and Care Planning trainings are offered ONLY to Louisiana Support Coordinators and Assessors who currently work for a Support Coordination Agency, Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE), or Long-Term Access Contractor that provide services to individuals receiving Community Choices Waiver (CCW), Adult Day Health Care (ADHC) Waiver, PACE, and/or Long-Term Personal Care Services (LT-PCS).


Effective April 1, 2021,  MDS-HC and Care Planning classes are suspended because OAAS is in the process of developing a new certification curriculum.


Recertification classes will remain suspended as well. Assessors with certifications expiring in 2021 will receive a certification extension as long as classes are suspended. All assessors will be required to be trained/certified on the new curriculum once classes resume.


Support Coordination Supervisors should contact Cheryl Dickerson  at if there is an immediate need to certify new assessors. 


Certification trainings are scheduled to resume later in 2021. All assessors will be notified once new certification training classes are available and open for registration.
