The Learning Centre for Senior Living (TLC) is ASCHA’s online learning portal. It is available to all ASCHA's Regular Members as a value-added member benefit and currently the vast majority members are using TLC for their employees’ training. With industry standards constantly evolving, operators need to stay on top of training and compliance to offer the best possible services to their residents. The Learning Centre helps our members keep up with the Alberta Occupational Health & Safety, Continuing Care Health Service Standards (CCHSS), and Supportive Living Accommodation Standards training requirements without taking a lot of time away from what they do best – taking care of the residents/tenants.

An online library is available to each member organization to house their own organizational policies, procedures, and training materials.
