Additional Training requirements:
In an effort to improve the accessibility and ongoing support for our providers we have restructured the Employment First Partnership training requirements for FY 2017. The former “Marketing and Employer Engagement” and “Worksite Supports and Training” requirements have been changed into a one day in person “Implementing Quality Employment First practices” training and four follow up web courses. Minimizing travel and related costs for providers. Those who have completed the one day in person training will be sent a special link for completion of the web courses covering the following topics: Employment First, Job Analysis and Task Analysis, Systematic Instruction and Employer Engagement. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns. Please note that if you have already successfully completed the previous 2 day training you do not need to complete the new training format.
The next scheduled Implementing Quality Employment First practices is December 14, 2016 (FULL) in Columbus, OH. Register at one of the links below for the date you are interested in attending:
