MDS 3.0 Certification Workshop – 4 day

Boston, MA

Hotel Indigo

399 Grove St, Newton, MA 02462


July 19-22, 2016- Tue – Fri 10-2pm

Fall/Winter dates: TBA


This comprehensive 4 day workshop serves as a training to provide participants an overview of the MDS 3.0/RAI process. MDS Training Institute has built a reputation for new and experienced MDS professionals gaining a solid understanding of the total MDS 3.0 process. Because the MDS tool can be a complex learning process, we offer all of our participants of the 4 day workshop additional live virtual trainings in a one day a week format for no additional cost.

The MDS 3.0 User’s manual is 1160 pages of rules and regulations that serves as a vital link in the long-term care industry. We have found that participants with little or no experience in MDS have difficulty in understanding the concepts that are required in a 3 or even 4 day workshop, especially learners that are responsible for implementing and enforcing these rules.

MDS Training Institute has a high focus on complete training and understanding that begins at the very basics. We do offer a fully accredited certification program, but more importantly we aim for complete understanding. Our students and facilities are raving at the personal touches and additonal support that we offer especially for first year practitioners. We want to make certain that you leave our trainings feeling accomplished and confident in the ability to service your facility in maximizing reimbursement, and reporting quality of care. If you have recently attended other certification program and are not feeling confident, give MDS Training Institute and call, we have a long list of non-experienced nurses who were able to leave our full program and assume the role of an MDS Coordinator. We may not be the most popular certification program, but we have been considered the most effective!

Courses Include:

  • MDS Coding for OBRA and PPS
  • RUG IV
  • OBRA Time and Scheduling
  • Care Area Assessments
  • PPS Timing and Scheduling
  • Introduction to Medicare Part A
  • Care Planning
  • Accurately Assessing Functional Status


A complete and updated hardcopy of the MDS Users Manual, practice MDS form, and workbook is provided to each participant

Workshop Information and expectations:

The 4 day workshop is intense exposure to the MDS 3.0 process. Participants new to MDS and planning to pursue a new career surrounding in MDS will definitely need more that a short training of 4 days, and will be invited to continue in one of our existing 6 week classes depending on your schedule. Any experienced MDS Coordinator can tell you that learning to become an MDS Nurse does not happen overnight.
