Designated Coordinator Development Program*
The Designated Coordinator Development Program (DCDP) is a three day interactive course designed to help participants gain the knowledge, confidence, and skills necessary to be a successful Designated Coordinator.
Who Should Attend?
This program is ideal for managers serving individuals in SLS, SILS, in-home, and vocational settings as well as direct support professionals who desire training on management responsibilities in the field of developmental disabilities.
The DCDP course is intended to provide comprehensive training on management duties commonly required in licensed services. It does not waive the education and experience required in the Consolidated Standards (245B).
The Designated Coordinator Development Program includes:
- 3 day course covering all topic requirements

The program has been hugely successful! Participants take a pre-course assessment and post-course assessment to chart their progress in the program. The average score on the pre-course assessment has been approximately 26/100 or 26%. Scores on the post-course assessment have averaged 86/100 or 86%. This is an improvement of 231%! We are proud of the increased knowledge and experience that is filtering through the field of disabilities as more and more people take the course and share all the new information with others.
