Adult Day Care Centers                                                                                                            CTA certifies and re-certifies the Adult Day Care Centers in Hawaii for which there are 37 currently.  We implement the licensing requirements of the Hawaii Revised Statutes (HRS) 346-83 and Hawaii Administrative Rules (HAR) Chapter 17-1424 and any revised rules.  Each adult day care center, statewide, is to be reviewed on an annual basis following the requirements set forth in the rules.

Nurse Aide Training and Competency Evaluation Programs                                                       In July 2009, the Med-Quest Division of the Department of Human Services transferred responsibility for certifying the training programs to the Social Services Division under the existing rules and procedures for the Med-Quest Division.

CTA Reviews all NATCEP's (Nurse Aide Training Competency Evaluation Program) statewide to ensure programs are meeting the minimum State of Hawaii requirements in the rules and regulations.

The three primary elements in these regulations require: 1) curriculum approval, 2) instructor qualification approval, and 3) observation of the instructor in the classroom environment, simulated environment, and actual long-term care facility environment.
