Coastal Bend College Offering Medication Administration Refresher Course

The Medication Administration Refresher course will be held at Coastal Bend College Beeville and Coastal Bend College Alice. The cost of the seven-hour course includes tuition and materials at $75. Those who satisfactorily complete the course will receive .7 CEU’s and a certificate of completion from Coastal Bend College.

This Medication Administration Refresher course will serve to provide a review of medication management task performance for direct support professionals, behavioral technicians, program coordinators, and program directors.  The refresher serves those who have previously completed the Medication Administration Training Course.

This course will cover major topics related to Medication Administration within your specific setting. Medication Aides are required to complete the 7-hour update before their expiration date.

For individuals passing the test after 01/01/00, their expiration date is one year from the original date of issue – their expiration date will not be their date of birth. If you still have any questions about your permit, you may call 512-231-5827.
