Vendor and Course Lists

Prospective and existing administrators are responsible for ensuring that all courses taken as part of the administrator certification process, either initial or continuing education training program courses, are approved by the Department of Social Services (DSS) Administrator Certification Section (ACS). Courses that do not have DSS approval will not be accepted by the ACS.

The ACS has a NEW resource for administrators; a comprehensive list of approved administrator training courses.  Administrators can now review course lists by program to determine what courses best meet their training needs. Administrators can then contact the vendor for more information.  Until further notice, course lists will be updated on a weekly basis.
