How to enroll as a PSW Job Coach through the Department of Human Services
Personal support worker job coaches help individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities develop skills to be successful at work. To qualify to be a job coach, one must enroll as both a personal support worker and a personal support worker job coach. You can select both options when you complete the PSW Provider Enrollment Application and Agreement.

The enrollment process begins by visiting a local Community Developmental Disabilities Program (CDDP) or brokerage to complete the required paperwork and submit a background check (please see the requirements for personal support workers).
Job coaches have additional requirements. They must complete a minimum of one Department-approved competency-based employment training within 90 days of enrollment, and be able to demonstrate the Core Competencies and Training Standards within one year of enrollment in order to provide Medicaid funded employment services. In addition, a personal support worker job coach must complete at least one annual competency based training as a continuing education requirement to continue providing services as a job coach.
