These trainings are designed for staff provider agencies designate as their College of Direct Support Administrators.  Participants may include: administrative assistants, human resources staff, and agency trainers.  Participation in these trainings will help agencies meet the minimum requirement of tracking Pre-Service training and use the optional state of the art continuing education opportunities available through the College of Direct Support.  In these trainings, administrators will learn how to enroll new staff into the CDS system using the DDD required fields, release CDS course/lessons to staff, track Pre-Service and other agency training, and generate reports on an individual and agency basis.
