Empowering Assisted Living Providers to Advance the Ideals of Independence, Choice and Wellness Through Education, Advocacy and Resources

The Iowa Assisted Living Association (IALA) is the only trade association in Iowa focused solely on assisted living. We are proud to be affiliated nationally with Argentum (formerly the Assisted Living Federation of America). Growing numbers of people living into their 80’s, 90’s, and beyond challenge assisted living providers as never before. Our members strive to offer elders opportunities to enjoy choice in lifestyles and services as well as ways to maximize independence and wellness throughout the aging process. Members connect with peers through educational training sessions and conferences, and gain a thorough understanding of industry regulations through our online management course. IALA’s education is easy to obtain, relevant to today’s challenges, and affordable. Let us empower you to be the best in your role of serving Iowa’s elders.


The Assisted Living Management Course is designed for new Administrators, Managers and Nurses, or as a refresher course for anyone to better understand Assisted Living Codes. Offered online, the program also meets DIA requirements and contains the most recent rules updates.

Please note, the Medication Management course is non-refundable. Once the course has been completed and the learner receives their certificate, the course does not have to be retaken. Prior to purchasing the course, please ask new hires if they have already taken the course and received a certificate. If the new hire needs a copy of their certificate, please contact CE Solutions.

New hires need to present a certificate for the Medication Management & DHS Mandatory Reporter courses.
