Empower employment professionals to support individuals in finding fulfilling competitive integrated employment.
New state and federal policy changes demand new guidelines and practices for your organization. Support your staff with the latest information built on national competency and ethical standards.
The College of Employment Services (CES) curriculum is tailored to employment professionals who work alongside people with disabilities who are seeking competitive integrated employment opportunities. CES promotes a person-centered approach to employment services, honoring individual choices for jobs and careers.
The CES curriculum is approved and accredited by the Association of Community Rehabilitation Educators (ACRE). Learn more about how to obtain ACRE certification using CES.
CES also follows the national competencies developed by APSE. Certified Rehabilitation Counselor (CRC) credits are available to those who have their CRC Certification.
This trusted training ensures that everyone at your organization delivers high-quality, individualized services that are based on best practices, throughout the employment services process.
This curriculum is written by staff at the Institute for Community Inclusion (ICI) at the University of Massachusetts Boston. For nearly 60 years, ICI has partnered with people with disabilities, their families, and communities to advocate for personal choice, self-determination, and social and economic justice.
