Description

Our Mission

The Society of Certified Senior Advisors (SCSA) educates and certifies professionals who work with seniors. The Certified Senior Advisor (CSA)® credential applies to professionals in all industries who are able to demonstrate their competence and knowledge of working with older adults into their professional practices. By creating a network of qualified professionals, SCSA strives to create a strong and safe environment for older adults and those working with them.

CSAs are required to agree to the CSA Code of Professional Responsibility, pass a third-party criminal background check, pass the CSA certification examination, and complete the CSA Ethics module before they may be certified. The CSA Code of Professional Responsibility requires CSAs to place the needs of older adults first and foremost. To maintain certification, individuals must demonstrate a continued commitment to high standards and professional ethics. An updated criminal background check and 30 hours of continuing education (CE) are required every three years.

The CSA certification and Working with Older Adults education programs have been developed through a process of rigorous practice analysis/research study involving hundreds of professionals who work with older adults from the academic community, industry practitioners, regulators, business, and non-governmental organizations. Accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA), the CSA credential applies to professionals in all disciplines. SCSA is committed to maintaining the high standards of ANSI and NCCA accreditation by continually improving its certification and education programs.
