Certificate Programs are offered in certain locations as a training option for clients. The purpose of these programs is to provide an alternative to traditional classroom training, as well as an incentive for employers to hire our clients, as they have received training specific to that industry that will be of benefit to the business. Certificate programs are meant to include the direct involvement of a business, as a site for OJT/OJE, a hiring option, and possibly as a trainer. Community Colleges and other educational institutions can also be utilized for the educational piece of the training program. An MOU will be written for any business/institution completing the training, and renewed on an annual basis.
Certificate Programs, when successfully completed, will always result in a minimum of a VR certificate of completion. In some cases, an additional certification/licensure may be achieved.
See checklists for staff responsibilities. Please note that some staff's timelines cross over, so please review each staff's duties so that you can properly ascertain when each task should be completed.
