(1) 21 years of age if the individual will serve as a supervisor of other care providers;

(3) 16 years of age if the individual will serve only as a care provider and has access to assistance from the administrator or another care provider who is at least 21 years of age.

(b) An administrator shall ensure and document that each care provider is oriented to the assisted living home's policies and procedures, including those required under 7 AAC 75.210(a) (3), and any other policies and procedures developed under AS 47.33 or this chapter that would be relevant under this subsection. Orientation under this subsection must include orientation to emergency procedures, fire safety, resident rights, universal precautions for infection control, biohazards, applicable state regulations and statutes, resident interaction, any house rules established under AS 47.33.060 , sanitation, duties and responsibilities, medication management and security, physical plant layout, and reporting responsibilities. Unless a care provider has sufficient documented experience working with the population of residents to be served, the care provider shall work under the direct supervision of the administrator or an experienced care provider who is at least 21 years of age for not less than three complete work days before caring for a resident without direct supervision. Direct supervision must be documented in the personnel file of the supervised care provider.

(c) For purposes of this section, "direct supervision" means that the administrator, or a care provider who is at least 21 years of age and has received the training required under this chapter, is present in the same building as the individual being supervised and available for consultation or assistance.
