Care Providers of Minnesota has collaborated with Relias to develop a comprehensive licensed assisted living director (LALD) education program. This program has been approved by the Minnesota Board of Executives for Long-Term Services and Supports (BELTSS) and meets the education requirements of Minnesota Rule Chapter 6400.
Completion of the LALD program is one step toward earning an assisted living director license. LALD applicants may need to pass two exams—NAB, which is a national exam, and a Minnesota exam—and complete a mentorship. Complete details on LALD requirements and application may be found on the BELTSS website. The fees for the national and state exams are not included in the LALD program fee.

Care Providers of Minnesota has created a directory of members who are licensed Assisted Living Directors (LALDs) or licensed Health Service Executives (HSEs) through BELTSS and are willing to be a mentor to someone in the process of getting their LALD.
Care Providers of Minnesota resource—Minnesota Assisted Living License Regulations: a hard copy of assisted living statutes and regulations. A digital version is included in the LALD program handbook.
National Association of Long-Term Care Administrator Boards (NAB)—LALD applicants may need to take and pass the NAB test, which has two components: National Core of Knowledge Exam for Long Term Care Administrators and National Residential Care/Assisted Living Administrators Line of Service Examination Program. Care Providers of Minnesota strongly recommends LALD applicants consider buying the NAB study guide and practice tests to increase the likelihood of passing success.
