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.
