Well-trained medication technicians are an asset to any assisted living because they have fewer medication related events and are more efficient with time management.  We would like to partner with you to help improve medication safety and resident satisfaction by offering medication classes specifically created for medication technicians working in assisted living communities.

Our in-person classes offer a distraction free environment that has a fully stocked demonstration medication cart plus multiple education tools and props to help provide the most realistic training possible.  Classes for 10 or more may also be booked at your community by emailing narmijo@kormanhealthcare.com.

The Medication Storage class is only available online with a live teacher using Webex meetings.  Medication technicians participating in an online class must have a laptop and the free Webex meetings app downloaded prior to registering for the class.
