Beginning Jan 1st, 2024, the AFH Orientation course will no longer be offered and the certificate is not required when submitting an AFH application to DSHS.
This one-day class provides an overview of the AFH program and expectations of the AFH licensee in providing care and services to the residents in a licensed home setting as well as a brief overview of the process prospective providers will follow in obtaining an AFH license. This class is one of the requirements (see Washington Administrative Code [WAC]388-76-10060) applicants need to meet before turning in the application for licensure. Students will receive a certificate after completing the class; this certificate is valid for one calendar year from the date of attendance.
This class is online through Zoom. Students will be required to:
- Provide a valid email address when registering. The Zoom link will be sent the Thursday before class is to begin. You will not be able to access the class until the day of the class (between 8:30 am-8:45 am).
- Have your video on the entire duration of the class (9A-4P) please make sure you are in a spot where we can visibly see you. It is "highly recommended" that students use a computer/laptop as technical issues often occur with phones/tablets.
- Check-in at 8:15 AM with picture ID.
- Join the Zoom meeting with your first and last name.
