This training is made available to RCPA members through the NEON Project, with the goal of assisting Employment Service Providers so they can offer effective services to the individuals they serve.

Improving operations and outcomes is the goal, but how do we decide what data to capture? This presentation will discuss important data metrics that improved the NEON Project’s bottom line and helped the organization improve its operations. They will also tell their story of why employment is so important.

This training will be held Friday, June 10, 2022, from 10:00 am – 11:00 am. You can register for the session here. The presenter will be Jeannine Pavlak, Chief Executive Officer at New England Business Associates.

ODP Announcement 22-056 is to communicate that registration for the July – December 2022 Certified Investigator (CI) Initial Certification Course classes (also known as cohorts) is now open on MyODP. The Initial CI Certification Course was created to ensure that all incidents requiring an investigation receive a systematic review that meets established standards. In order to perform investigations, the investigator must successfully complete all requirements of the CI Initial Certification Course.

Due to continued concerns regarding COVID-19, the July – December 2022 CI Initial Certification cohorts of the course will be provided virtually rather than in person.

To register for the CI Initial Certification course:

  1. Log into your MyODP account.
  2. Go to the Certified Investigator Initial Certification Course Information web page.

Beginning on May 10, 2022, and continuing throughout the month into early June, Tempus and the Community HealthChoices (CHC) Managed Care Organizations (MCOs) will be holding in-person drop-in sessions across the state to assist participants in completing Common Law Employer (CLE) and Direct Care Worker (DCW) packets. They will also be providing training on how to use the Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) system. Tempus will be taking over as the Fiscal/Employer Agent Services for CHC Participant-Directed Services; therefore, participants and DCWs must complete transition packets and attend EVV training.
