Long Term Care Emergency Preparedness Educational Program

Year 4: August 2021 – February 2022

 

The mission of the LTCEP Educational Program is to provide caregivers and administrators with critical knowledge, skills and abilities related to disaster and emergency management decision-making skills by providing preparedness and disaster exercise training to certified CMS long term care facility staff members.

Year 4 courses will start in the Fall of 2021 with three course offerings
each of the Basic Course, Advanced Course, and a new Disaster Exercise
Course. We are awaiting a decision on whether courses will be held in-person or online via Zoom due to the COVID-19 pandemic. For further
updates, check out our Facebook page @GALTCEPEP

 

We offer three educational courses. A basic, advanced, and a new disaster exercise course.. Each course features an interactive session with the Georgia State Fire Marshal’s Office covering the survey process and E-tag trends in Georgia.

Completing the basic course is not required before taking the advanced or disaster exercise course, but it is highly recommended.
