College of Employment Services
The College of Employment Services provides online courses designed for people who explore, develop and support the employment goals of people with disabilities. This training is a powerful resource that can help equip people with the skills and competencies needed to provide employment services.
The Department of Human Services and the University of Minnesota have created learning modules that are available to help license-holders to provide competency-based training for their staffs around employment exploration, development and support services. These modules also align with the Certified Employment Support Professional (CESP) and the Association of Community Rehabilitation Educators (ACRE) certification requirements.
