Take This $25 Course to Build Your Water Management Knowledge

Programs and Resources

Effective water management programs are mandated for nursing facilities by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and highly recommended for assisted living facilities by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as a best practice. Skilled nursing and assisted living centers provide care for vulnerable people who can become critically ill when steps are not taken to reduce the risk of waterborne diseases such as Legionnaire’s.  

AHCA/NCAL offers an affordable online Water Management Training course that provides long term care staff with information about:   

  • what a water management plan is;  
  • the essential elements of an effective water management program; and,  
  • how nursing and assisted living facilities should develop and maintain comprehensive water management programs.  

The online one-hour training contains five modules and is designed for administrators, building engineers and maintenance department personnel, and other staff responsible for building operations or infection prevention and control.     

The cost for the training is $25 for AHCA/NCAL member facility staff and $65 for non-members. An online final test and certificate of completion are included with each registration.   

Members will need to login with their AHCA/NCAL usernames and passwords to register. For assistance obtaining usernames and passwords, members should e-mail educate@ahca.org​ with their name and facility contact information.
