PFE - Reaching New Heights Interactive Training: National APSE On the Horizon: Looking to the Future of Certification

Tuesday, June 30, 2020 9:00 AM


Presentation Title: On the Horizon: Looking to the Future of Certification


 Presentation Description: In working toward a future where all individuals with disabilities are employed in real jobs for real pay, having professionalized Employment Support Professionals (ESPs) is crucial to the success of Employment First.  Join APSE National Staff in this conversation, where we will take a new look at the value of certification in developing a competent workforce of direct support professionals (DSPs).  

The Certified Employment Support Professional (CESP™) credential recognizes individuals who have demonstrated a sufficient level of knowledge and skill to provide integrated employment services to a variety of populations. With data showing a current and predicted DSP/ESP workforce shortage, we will lead a discussion sharing where we’re headed and provide you strategies to engage ESPs as professionals.
