Training and maintaining competency
To become a competent interRAI assessor, you will attend training.
Before the training
Once you are confirmed for a place on a training course, your local educator will contact you, providing:
- information about the training requirements, and
- access to AIS, the system you will be using to complete the e-learning module ‘AIS-Mastering the RAI’ ahead of the course.
You and your manager will also be required to sign a learning agreement.
You will be asked to bring your facility’s blue interRAI User's Manual and the orange Community and Long-Term Care Assessment Instruments (CAPs) book with you to training.
Your educator will provide you with a workbook for the training.
interRAI manuals (the blue and orange books) are provided on a facility/office basis. They are not the property of an individual assessor. Additional user manuals can be purchased from interRAI International at www.interrai.org
Your educator will support you throughout your training. Once you have completed the initial training course, there are a range of steps to reach interRAI competency.
