WISE, sponsored by DHS Employment First, is hosting the CESP Exam
What is The Certified Employment Support Professional™ Exam?
The CESP™ program is the first in the nation to create national guidelines to validate and support the training currently provided in the field. The certification program falls under the oversight of the Employment Support Professional Certification Council (ESPCC), established by the APSE Board of Directors.
Unlike training programs that provide a certificate of completion, the CESP™ certification sets a standard of knowledge and distinguish employment support professionals who have shown they have the skill and competence to perform the requirements of the job.
Created by subject matter experts and leaders in the field of disability employment, the CESP™ exam seeks to define the benchmarks for knowledge and competency in the field in the following areas:
- Application of Core Values and Principles to Practice & Legislation and Funding
- Individualized Assessment and Employment / Career Planning
- Community Research and Job Development
- Workplace and Related Supports
- Ongoing Supports
