The Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) has announced that the College of Employment Services (CES) Online Association of Community Rehabilitation Education (ACRE) Basic Employment Certification Course is now available. Effective immediately, ODP and the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation (OVR) have allotted seats for up to 500 learners across Pennsylvania. Because this is a limited resource, providers are asked to only enroll those staff who are required to hold the ACRE Basic Certificate of Achievement. ODP and OVR also ask that no single provider enroll more than 15 trainees prior to September 30, 2018. Please note the following:
- If your organization is already providing training through College of Direct Support (CDS), you do not need to obtain additional administrative rights.
- If your organization is new to CES, you will need to contact the Elsevier organization to purchase administrative rights based on the number of CES learners your organization wishes to train.
- If your organization is interested in both CDS and CES, your organization will need to contact the Elsevier organization to purchase administrative rights based upon the number of learners your organization wishes to train.
For questions regarding the cost of administrative rights, please contact Leigh Evans, Account Specialist, Elsevier Clinical Solutions, via email or phone 404-799-4009. The announcement, Communication Number 041-18, can be found here.
