FAQs

Q: How many hours of video does the Teepa Snow Advanced Dementia Care training include?
A: 99 hours of video!
Q: What’s the format?
A: The trainings are video-based with multiple-choice test questions. Many of the videos include real-life filmed scenarios of Teepa Snow and her PAC colleagues working with older adults who are living with dementia. The trainings vary in length, ranging from 20 minutes to an hour or more.
Q: How many classes?
A: There are 40 unique titles.
Q: Does Teepa herself “star” in her training classes or does she just teach them?
A: Teepa both teaches and stars in the trainings. It’s a combination of her talking directly to the camera and speaking to others around her including care providers and older adults alike.
Q: Will the Teepa content be good toward CE credits?
A:  If a customer is in a state that doesn’t require approval, but just has topic-specific CE requirements, they can absolutely use the Teepa content. This is the case in most states for home care workers. If the customer is in a state that requires approval for CE (for example, California CNA CEs, Washington CEs, Florida CNA CEs, DC CNA CEs), then they cannot use it toward their CE requirement. Currently, Teepa’s classes do not hold any approvals in any state. 

Q: Do any of the PAC classes we’ve licensed count toward the PAC certification programs?
A: PAC/Teepa Snow have their own certifications for dementia trainers. The online classes that we’re partnered with her to offer do not count toward the PAC certifications. 
Q: If I purchase the Teepa Snow Advanced Dementia Care, does it grant me the ability to see Teepa Snow if/when she presents locally? Or do I get a discounted offer on having Teepa come and speak at my office?
A: Access to this content (via the Teepa Snow x CareAcademy Dementia Training Alliance) is separate from Teepa’s appearance fees or her organization (PAC). CareAcademy is not a division of Teepa Snow or PAC.
