Community Care Facility - Direct Support Professional Training Program

Effective January 1, 1999, the Department of Developmental Services implemented mandated statewide competency-based training for direct support professionals employed in regional center vendored community care facilities. This mandate arises out of the conviction that consumers of residential services are entitled to the highest standard of service and that direct support professionals deserve training and recognition as professionals.
