Designated Coordinator and Manager Development Program
All 245D licensed programs are required to have a Designated Coordinator (DC) and Designated Manager (DM). The DC and DM at your agency need to have a clear understanding of the requirements in MN Statutes, chapter 245D to ensure your agency’s success. The Designated Coordinator and Manager Development Program is an interactive course designed to help participants gain the knowledge, confidence, and skills necessary to be a successful Designated Coordinator or Designated Manager.
Who Should Attend?
This program is ideal for managers supporting individuals in 245D licensed residential or vocational intensive support services as well as direct support professionals who desire training on management responsibilities in the field of human services.
What Should Participants Expect?
The DCDP course is intended to provide comprehensive training on management duties commonly required in licensed services. Although this course does not waive the education and experience requirements of the Designated Coordinator and Designated Manager in MN Statutes, chapter 245D, it gives the attendees a comprehensive understanding of 245D regulations and how to implement them at your agency.
The DCDP program offers two options. The three day option is designed to give DCs and DMs the tools they need to comply with MN Statutes, chapter 245D. The optional fourth day is for individuals who want to build their management and leadership skills by learning approaches on resolving conflicts, gaining trust, establishing boundaries and communicating with staff and the individual’s team.
Participants will receive all course materials as well as sample forms and policies. To demonstrate knowledge gained in the course, a post-course assessment will be completed.
