Before a Home and Community Support Services Agency can become licensed, certain members of its staff must complete an important preliminary training called Presurvey Training. [26 TAC §558.13(a)]
To ensure that HCSSA license applicants can meet the requirement, the HHSC has created an online version of the HCSSA Presurvey Training. Successfully completing this computer-based training (CBT) will fully satisfy the Presurvey Training licensure requirement.
Each Presurvey CBT module will take from 30 minutes to an hour to complete; however, there is no time limit imposed on participants.
After completing each required module, training participants must print out a participation verification certificate. Sign each of these documents, keep a copy for your agency’s records, and submit a copy with your agency’s license application. Application packets will not be accepted without these documents!
All training participants must complete Modules 1 and 2. Click on each to begin.
All training participants must also complete an additional module for each of their agency’s selected service categories. Click on each applicable module to begin.
If, after taking Modules 1 and 2, you are unsure about what other modules you need to take, please contact the appropriate regional office.
