ADM# 2021-06 Allowance to Transfer Approved Medication Administration Personnel (AMAP) Certifications Between Provider Agencies

Approved Medication Administration Personnel (AMAP) play a critical role in meeting the health needs of individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities.  Historically, AMAP certifications have not been transferrable among provider agencies or provider associations.  This Administrative Memorandum (ADM) provides efficiencies and standardization by establishing the requirements of transfer of AMAP certifications between provider agencies.  Further, this ADM sets forth processes to be used when a provider agency is hiring a Direct Support Professional (DSP) or other AMAP eligible titles in certified settings or where community delegated nursing services are authorized, when the staff has previously been certified in medication administration at another provider agency.
