This training contains 1 module and is estimated to take 25 minutes to complete. This training is broken down into four chapters. Chapter 1 will teach you about YES Waiver goals, the history of the program, and eligibility requirements. Chapter 2 covers service delivery, provider selection, the participant enrollment process, and important resources for successful implementation. Chapter 3 explores each service included in the YES Waiver service array. Chapter 4 walks through what the program looks like for youth and families and explores your role in the process. You’ll be reviewing these chapters in order. Upon successful completion of the course, you will earn a certificate of completion, but no continuing education credit is offered.
