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.

Please Note. Registrations for the Online Alaska Core Competencies are non-transferable. If you are unable to attend after you have registered and made payment, you must follow the AKTC refund policy of notifying the training coordinator or AKTC Support within two working days prior to the training date. You will then be withdrawn from the training and issued a refund. Your registration may not be transferred to an alternate staff member. Thank you.
