Individuals taking these pre-service trainings must be employed by an agency approved by the Division of Developmental Disabilities and be pre-registered with the CDS prior to training.

Individuals taking the training must be registered and must pay in advance. Cancellations with at least 24 hours notice will result in a full refund available up to 7 days after the scheduled class. Organizations sending employees must complete a Memorandum of Understanding.  This must be signed and returned before participants are officially registered for the group training class.
