The RAI Process Across all Disciplines Training learning modules:

  • RAI process and CMS mandate
  • Compliance with CMS requirements

MDS 3.0 Certification Training Level I

Each MDS LTC training course utilizes several key course components. The first component teaches the process of MDS and its history. Students will learn the history of TILES and MDS 2.0 in order to understand how they integrate into the newest version of MDS, 3.0.

The second and largest component of the training will be a thorough defining and explanation of MDS 3.0. Here, students learn the specialty skills set, rules and regulations, Medicare reimbursement rates, and coding used to complete assessment forms. Students will then be given a practicum, clinical case studies where they must put their new technical knowledge of MDS coding to use. The practicum teaches students data entry skills, allowing them to input MDS codes and RUGS into a system specially created for training purposes.

The system will educate them on how to navigate within the bounds of the Medicaid/Medicare rules and regulations. As a result of learning this component of the training, students will gain a thorough understanding of MDS data entry skills, an understanding of the code set, and be able to detect and eliminate the potential for fraud.

The third component of the training focuses on entrepreneurship. Our instructors will impart upon the students the skills needed for them to take leadership roles to become MDS coordinators and work independently in their facilities.

MDS/RAI Certification Training Level II


MDSRAI-CT is Level 2 in the achievement of certification which merges MDS Level 1, MDS 3.0 Form, the RAI process and RAI manual and with high importance the integration of other functional components and identification of agencies mandated by Centers for Medicare/Medicaid (CMS) in RAI Compliance for reimbursement.
