New Employment Specialist Trainings for 2016

The Indiana Institute’s Center on Community Living and Careers has scheduled four new Indiana Employment Specialist Trainings (EST) for 2016. EST provides training and expertise for Indiana employment professionals supporting people with disabilities who are seeking community employment. All Employment Specialist Trainings combine online integrated content with two in-person, face-to-face meetings where participants have the chance to receive essential support from experts in the field as well as their colleagues-in-training from around the state.

The first training of 2016 will be:

February 1 – March 28, 2016 (access to online content)
February 1 and March 1, 2016 (in-person meetings) 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Eastern Time, at Easter Seals Crossroads, 4740 Kingsway Dr., Indianapolis.

EST prepares participants for the APSE Certified Employment Specialist Professional Exam. Trainings are intended for new professionals in the field - employment consultants, job coaches, job developers, mental health professionals, vocational coordinators, and WorkOne staff. The deadline for registration is January 27, 2016. Registration fee is $200.00 per participant.
