The 701 Assessment Instruments Comprehensive Online Training

To facilitate implementation of these new tools, the Department has produced a web-based training curriculum for assessors and case managers who conduct comprehensive assessments. Before administering the new 701B, assessors and case managers must complete the online training and retain a certificate to demonstrate they successfully passed the final examination.  For further guidance, see Notice of Instruction #061413-1-I-SWCBS and its attachments at the following link:  http://elderaffairs.state.fl.us/doea/nois.php. (Please note: Congregate Meal Site providers are not required to complete comprehensive training. The Department has developed a separate document that can be accessed through the website in the notice of instruction link.)
