The Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) has announced the schedule for upcoming Quality Management (QM) Certification classes. The ODP QM Certification Program enhances the QM knowledge and skills of ODP staff and stakeholders throughout the service delivery system. ODP recognizes that providing opportunities to join together to become ODP QM Certified will improve our system’s expertise and capacity to move forward in partnership and collaboration.
With the implementation of the QA&I Process in July 2017, each AE is expected to have one staff person who is ODP QM Certified on its Provider Review Team. To meet this demand, ODP is offering four classes in the Spring of 2019. These classes are located throughout the Commonwealth to make them more accessible.
ODP Announcement 19-004 provides the application requirements and process to register for the classes.
