Training Overview Description

The Alaska Core Competencies are a set of essential skills for DSPs (direct support providers or direct support professionals) who deliver services to persons with mental health and substance use conditions, intellectual and physical disabilities, and older adults who need long-term services and support.

There are 10 broad competency categories which are broken down into 42 individual competencies, and then each competency is defined by behavioral descriptors. This is a unique feature which allows workers to understand what it looks like to perform at the Excellent, Satisfactory, and Unsatisfactory levels.
