CCI - Voluntary Provider Training Curriculum


This IHSS Voluntary (Optional) Provider Training Curriculum is the product of a stakeholder workgroup process. The workgroup was composed of representatives from the Department of Social Services, Adult Programs Division; county and Public Authority representatives; IHSS consumers and providers; advocates, labor unions, and provider representatives; California State University, Sacramento, College of Continuing Education; and state partner, the Department of Health Care Services. We are grateful to the members of this workgroup for sharing their insights.
