APRO is moving to continuing education beginning fall 2012. All students who are degree seeking students must finish their APRO coursework by May 2013. For more information on the APRO program through continuing education, click this link.
Beginning fall 2012, students will earn a certificate of completion that is recognized as satisfying the State of Wyoming Training Course to be a qualified Activities Professional. This move allows the Training Course to be offered more quickly and effectively to our workers in long-term care facilities. Please contact Ann Dalton or Sarah Olson for more information.
Activities professionals provide elderly and disabled clients opportunities to pursue social, mental, creative, spiritual and recreational activities. Whether planning a holiday party, playing bingo or leading a stretching class, activities professionals work to provide a better quality of life for their clients.
Activities professionals work in long-term care nursing homes, swing bed or subacute units, retirement homes, assisted living centers, boarding homes, adult daycare centers and senior centers.
