Designated Coordinator Qualifications and Job Duties - Virtual Classroom

This is an online event.

Joining instructions will be provided after booking.


MN Statutes, chapter 245D, requires all service providers (basic or intensive) need to have a Designated Coordinator (DC). But what exactly is this position responsible for? Does the Designated Coordinator(s) (DC) at your company have the knowledge and competency to do their job according to 245D? Are they fulfilling their responsibilities as required? While many people think they know what a DC does, 245D has very specific responsibilities for the position including professional oversight of the services being provided to each person. Recent correction orders from DHS Licensing include violations about the DC because they have not met the requirements of 245D. Participants in this course will gain beneficial insights so that they can help guide their company away from licensing violations.

Course topics:

  • Explore what the qualifications are for a DC's education and education
  • Identify each DC job duty directed by chapter 245D
  • Discuss examples of these job duties and how a provider can fulfill these responsibilities
  • Walk through a year of service provision and required paperwork from admission to annual
  • Brainstorm practical tips to being a DC including organizing, communicating, scheduling, and tracking of all necessary information
  • Understand what compliance is and how your role is vital in finding and maintaining it

Being a DC can feel overwhelming especially when more and more responsibilities fall onto the shoulders of this position. Many DCs find themselves being held accountable for compliance to chapter 245D without understanding how their role is vital to that area. This session is a fantastic introduction to the DC world of responsibilities. Once completed, other STAR Services virtual and live trainings are available to advance a DC's understanding and skills to the next level.

CEU Contact Hours: 1.8 for Nurses, 1.5 for Social Workers


Registered participants will have access to the session recording for two weeks following the training.
