Curriculum Types and Components
There are two types of Dementia Training curricula that are subject to review and approval: 

  1. curricula intended for use with Nursing Facility staff (NF, NF/SCU), or
  2. curricula intended for use with Adult Residential Care staff (ARC, ARC/SCU). 

Within those two types, curricula may target all employees, including those that work on a dementia special care unit and those that do not; or may target sub-categories of employees (for instance, just direct care staff who work on a dementia special care unit in an ARC).  The cost of curriculum review depends on the scope of the submitted curriculum (i.e., numbers of hours) and the category and type of employee to be trained using the curriculum.
