To maintain competency and remain an approved interRAI assessor, you need to:
- maintain a Health Professional Annual Practicing Certificate
- complete an assessment every 6 months, with a minimum of 2 assessments to be completed in a year to National Standards
- complete the set of AIS evaluations annually
- If selected, pass a quality review of an assessment
- If applicable, comply with any additional local competency requirements, for example, attending an education
The AIS e-learning site will send you an automated reminder email before your evaluation is due.
Once you pass, you receive a certificate which you can print off for your Professional Development File.
You can take up to five attempts for evaluation. If you have failed the first three attempts, you need to tell your Educator, who will then review your training results with you, and find training opportunities.
Every year, the AIS e-learning system randomly selects assessors who need to go through a quality review. The quality review involves the review of a randomly selected assessment from the last 12 months
What if I fail
If you fail any of the requirements to maintain competency, your access to interRAI may be changed to ‘admin’ user status. This will still allow you to enter non-clinical details on the resident overview page. You will not be able to complete assessments anymore.
To get your full assessor access back, you will need to complete additional training.
