2. Optional Computer-Based Training and Competency Test

A LIDDA has the option of having their employees, agents and subcontractors complete HHSC’s ANE Competency Training. The completion of the computer-based training by employees, agents, and subcontractors meets the requirement in Section 1a of this appendix.

If employees, agents and subcontractors complete HHSC’s ANE Competency Final Test, they must receive a score of at least 80 percent.

Employees, agents and subcontractors must first sign up on the Learning Portal to have access to HHSC approved trainings, including this ANE training, entitled ANE Competency Training and Exam (online). The ANE training is found in Medicaid Long Term Services and Supports Training under the Health and Human Services Commission Courses tab.
