Redesigned LTCF training

Registrations available now. Please contact us to make your booking.

LTCF by distance is fast and convenient
The new course helps trainees become fully competent quickly and easily. Dedicated training time is reduced from 3 days to 2 days, and there is no time lost to travel as the course can be completed anywhere. It now takes only 6 weeks (previously 8) for trainees to become fully competent. 

The redesigned course structure
The course includes modules of self-directed learning, educator-directed learning and workplace-based learning through completion of residents assessments. Trainees complete self-directed learning modules independently, using our eLearning system. Our interRAI educators deliver the educator-directed modules via Zoom. Trainees also complete online multi-choice tests. All parts of the course including the resident assessments and the online test, must be completed within six weeks of starting the course.

Trainee considerations
To enable trainees to successfully complete this course, they will need:
- a quiet space with a computer (or laptop) that has sound
- a webcam and internet access with sufficient speed for video calling, as educators deliver course content via Zoom
- a supervising buddy. This person must be LTCF-competent, and available to answer questions and provide support during training.

Self-directed module must be completed in advance
Trainees must complete the first module of the directed learning by noon of the business day before the directed learning begins. The course is structured so that interRAI educators can build on this knowledge during the Zoom sessions. For this reason, trainees who don’t complete the first self-directed module by the deadline, are withdrawn from the course, and rescheduled for another date.

Other options
We recognise that LTCF training by distance will not suit everyone, so we will provide a face-to-face training option, incorporating the redesigned LTCF course, in the main centres (Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch) from July, subject to COVID-19 Alert Level changes. If this is a better option for your facility, please contact us.
