Provides the courses required by the State of Ohio to lead an Activity Department in long-term care facilities. Also, if wanting to apply for national certification, it provides the 90-hour modular education program for Activity Professionals Part 1 and the “Track 3” for the Activity Assistant Certified (AAC) by the National Certification Council for Activity Professionals (NCCAP). Additional academic and work experience may be necessary for the AAC. The NCCAP website is nccap.org.
For persons not necessarily seeking to head an activity department or wanting to seek national certification, it would increase their knowledge about professional activity work. All required courses are offered online and include the requirement of a 45-hour practicum placement at an agency that engages in professional activity work.
