Mandatory provider training schedule

The Bureau of Quality Improvement Services is committed to supporting our provider network in working toward a true person-centered system. We believe that professional development strengthens our network as a whole and ensures quality supports for individuals receiving home-and community-based services.

As part of that commitment, BQIS is continuing to host a series of web-based training opportunities. These opportunities are being provided at no cost to participants and are all mandatory for all current Bureau of Developmental Disabilities Services home-and community-based services providers. This means if your organization is a current BDDS service provider of any home-and community-based service, it is required that an executive level staff member of your organization attend these trainings. Sign-up, participation and completion of these trainings will be tracked and monitored throughout the trainings.

These trainings will now follow a bi-monthly, regular, set schedule:

  • First Thursday of the month 10 a.m. ET
  • Third Tuesday of every month 1 p.m. ET
  • Recording, with live Q&A, last Wednesday of the month at 10 a.m. ET

The following are specific dates of the next six trainings

  • July 7 and 19
    • Recording July 27
  • Sept.1 and 20
    • Recording Sept. 28
  • Nov. 3 and 15

    • Recording Jan. 25
  • March 2 and 21
    • Recording March 29
  • May 4 and 16

Topics for the series will include: Guardianship, Modifications under the Settings Rule, Access to Personal Resources, Team Dynamics, Trauma-informed Care, and Dual Diagnosis.

More detailed information and registration links will be sent out approximately one month prior to each training.

Individuals with disabilities, program managers, direct support professionals, case managers, and families are also all welcome to attend.

We look forward to continuing to educate and support providers to empower individuals to live, love, learn, work, play and pursue their dreams!
