WPSA Direct Care Competency Training

Right now WPSA is administering a program for "training the trainers" of direct care staff in order to create a competency-based system for empowering Direct Care Workers by developing specialized hands-on skills, emphasizing mentoring/tutoring and communication, and were designed to require demonstration and proven ability to perform required tasks on an individual basis. We call it DCC Training - which stands for Direct Care Competencies.
