The Argentum Board of Directors voted to create the Senior Living Certification Commission (SLCC) in 2015. SLCC is a nonprofit corporation, autonomous from Argentum and with its own governing Board of Commissioners.
Members of the Board of Commissioners were appointed at the first meeting of the Board which was held on December 16, 2015. The first administration of the Certified Director of Assisted Living examination occurred in September 2016.
The Senior Living Certification Commission (SLCC) offers a voluntary certification program for assisted living executive directors. SLCC is a member of the Institute for Credentialing Excellence.
To become certified, eligible assisted living executive directors must pass a written examination based on knowledge domains and job tasks related to knowledge and duties performed by assisted living executive directors. SLCC partners with a professional testing company, Castle Worldwide, to ensure the examination is psychometrically valid and meets all appropriate standards of certification.
