The NCBAC is the ONLY independent national board that follows the healthcare certification/licensure model to administer standardized certification examinations in dementia care. The purpose of the Board is to provide a benchmark for core competencies and knowledge for those who provide care and education in the field of dementia.
Board certification offers a voluntary, credentialing procedure that attempts to validate the competence of Alzheimer Caregivers and Educators based on practice-based knowledge and application of that knowledge.
The NCBAC is an allied healthcare board certification organization, which confers two national credentials and maintains a Registry for Certified Alzheimer Caregiver (CAC) and Certified Alzheimer Educator (CAEd).
CAEd Certification is for professionals who train healthcare workers in dementia care.
CAC Certification is for healthcare workers who give direct care to persons with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias.
