Alliance for Long-Term Care Quality Improvement (ALTCQI)


Founded in 2000, the Alliance for Long-Term Care Quality Improvement (ALTCQI) is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to provide long-term care health professionals with the training and education needed to successfully improve the quality of care and quality of life experienced by nursing home residents.

Our purpose is to provide the most recent and effective techniques related to quality assurance, risk management and regulatory compliance through multi-disciplinary teaching and training of long term care personnel. This is accomplished through the establishment of a national certification and recertification program. The ALTCQI grants certification to persons who apply and meet the current standards.
Individuals who meet the standards, successfully complete the  training program and pass the test will be granted certification. Individuals will then be able to use the professional designation of Risk Manager Certified (RMC). Re-certification is required every 2 years.
