DISA-1001Foundations in Disability & Community Support

An entry level course at the new employee requiring an introduction and orientation to the field of Developmental Services. New employees require basic skills training, and information to do their job safely and effectively. Areas to be addressed would include but not be restricted to: communication; planning and programming; health and safety issues; documentation; and a variety of areas viewed as essential by employers. They will recognize the value in providing services that are value based, respectful of individuals and their rights, and consistent with the new Vulnerable Persons Legislation in Manitoba. They also need basic knowledge in understanding the overall service delivery system and the role they will play in the organization they will be employed in.
