In Home Services Designated Manager Training

19 CSR 15-7.021(14)(A) and (B) requires all in-home service providers to have a designated manager on staff. To qualify as a designated manager, education and experience requirements must be met as well as passing a written test administered by MMAC.

The training materials for the test should be reviewed online. After viewing these sessions, you must take a written test. A three hour training session will be provided prior to the test. You are not required to attend the training portion, but it is highly recommended. If you do not pass the test, you can retake the test on any of the prescheduled test dates. Prior to taking the test again, it is advisable for you to review all of the online training materials.

Testing Schedule

The test is administered once per calendar quarter. Pre-registration is required and there is no cost to take the test.  The day will consist of 3 hours of classroom instruction beginning at 9:30 am, followed by a lunch break at approximately 12:30 pm, with review session beginning immediately following check in (you must present a valid photo ID) and testing is 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm.  After the test is completed and all testing materials have been turned in, you are invited to come back into the room for a question answer time with a panel of MMAC employees.
