All 245D licensed programs are required to have a Designated Coordinator (DC) and Designated Manager (DM). The DC and DM at your agency need to have a clear understanding of the requirements in MN Statutes, chapter 245D and MN Rules, chapter 9544 to ensure your agency’s success! The Designated Coordinator and Manager Development Program is an interactive course designed to help participants gain the knowledge, confidence, and skills necessary to be a successful Designated Coordinator or Designated Manager, especially for Intensive 245D Services.
The DCDP course is intended to provide comprehensive training on management duties commonly required in licensed services. Although this course does not waive the education and experience requirements of the Designated Coordinator and Designated Manager in MN Statutes, chapter 245D, it gives the attendees a comprehensive understanding of 245D regulations and how to implement them at your agency. Participants will receive all course materials as well as sample forms and policies.
The course includes three days of live training at our location in St. Paul. The full 21 hours of curriculum includes:
Minnesota Regulations: In Minnesota Statutes, we will review Chapters 245D, 245A, and 245C, Vulnerable Adult Act, and Maltreatment of Minors Act; In MN Rules, we will review chapter 9544
