CBC Offers Online Med Aide Refresher Course

Coastal Bend College (CBC) is offering an online Medication Administration Refresher course. The course will run from September 20, 2021 through September 27, 2021. The cost of the course is $75.

This 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. Failure to complete the update before the date shown on the permit will result in the Med Aide’s permits being deleted and their having to retake the 140-hour course.

For those individuals who were already Med Aides prior to 2000, their expiration date is their date of birth. 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.
