Atlanta — Nov. 30
Elsevier, a provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, introduced DirectCourse, a suite of online curricula to train professionals who support people with intellectual, developmental and physical disabilities.
DirectCourse is anchored by the College of Direct Support (CDS), an online curriculum for direct support professionals (DSPs) and managed in collaboration with Elsevier/MC Strategies and the University of Minnesota’s Research and Training Center on Community Living.
In addition, DirectCourse contains the College of Employment Services (CES), an online training curriculum developed by the Institute for Community Inclusion (ICI) at University of Massachusetts in Boston.
The CES was unveiled during the Alliance for Full Participation Summit 2.0. The CES curriculum seeks to give employment services professionals the skills and confidence they need to build more rewarding careers in working with job seekers to find fulfilling jobs.
“The CES curriculum is written for a cross-disability audience and its usefulness extends to those who provide services and supports to other individuals with employment challenges such as ex-offenders, TANF recipients and staff of One-Stop Centers, and our unique partnership with the University of Minnesota and Elsevier immediately gives us a brand, a history and a reputation for quality,” said Karen Flippo of ICI at University of Massachusetts in Boston
