Welcome to MDS Training Institute

Education for Long Term Care Specialist

MDS Training Institute is a training and education based organization designed to train healthcare professionals on the total Resident Assessment Instrument (RAI), MDS (Minimum Data Set) 3.0 Process.

The trainings will both serve to teach and prepare new applicants for the position of MDS Coordinator and enhance the skills of those currently involved in the MDS 3.0 process.


MDS Training Institute (Formally known as Assessment Nurse Coordinators) has been training clinicians on the MDS/RAI since 2006.  We know first-hand how important this dynamic tool is in serving the Long-Term Care industry. The MDS 3.0, developed by the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), is a comprehensive assessment tool used primarily to assist facilities in providing Quality Nursing Care.


Just as important, it is also utilized to determine reimbursement rates for State & Federal (Medicare) funding programs. 


The MDS 3.0 Coordinator Certification program meets once a week for 7 sessions to assure that its trainees are equipped with the knowledge that is required to assist Skilled Nursing Facilities in successfully reporting Quality of Care, & Maximization of State and Federal Reimbursement programs for the facilities that they serve.
