The 24-hour training requirement may not be met through in-services at the facility, but may be met through structured, formalized classes, correspondence courses, training videos, distance learning programs, or off-site training courses.

A manager must complete the training required by the first anniversary of employment as manager. An assisted living manager who was employed by a licensed assisted living facility as the manager and changes employment to another licensed assisted living facility as the manager, with a break in employment of no longer than 30 days, is exempt from the 24-hour training requirement.
