Training Guidelines for Direct Service Providers: Comprehensive and Support services


State Policies & Initiatives: 
Training/Capacity Building
“A small work group consisting of DDS staff and representative(s) from the Colorado Association of Community Centered Boards (CACCB), Community Centered Boards (CCBs), program approved service agencies (PASA) and advocacy was formed to review current requirements and make recommendations for minimum training guidelines. The guidelines and recommendations for training contained in this document are a result of the work of this group.” 
…DDS believes that there should be some differences in expectations for training for direct service providers who may be providing support services to only one or two persons and whose employment or connections are not primarily in the developmental disabilities system. This document is therefore organized to allow for differences in training depending on how support services are provided”
