Customized Employment Training

Any approved DVR Service Provider seeking to provide Customized Employment services to DVR consumers is required to have personnel that are providing the service complete one of the trainings listed below or one that meets the ODEP competencies.

Service Providers are not required to submit training certificates to DVR, but certificates must be kept on file by the Service Provider for any personnel providing Customized Employment services to DVR consumers. DVR may request that the provider produce a copy of the certificate of completion on an individual basis.

Below is a list of trainings that WI DVR is currently aware of that will qualify service provider personnel to provide Customized Employment. This list is not all inclusive. A Service Provider may attend any customized employment training, even if it is not listed below, as long as it meets the ODEP competencies.

Service Providers are responsible for all fees, costs and other requirements related to these trainings.
