The Polus Center has developed a comprehensive training program aimed at preparing individuals to successfully enter into the field of human services. This six-week virtual training program is available state-wide and will prepare participants to work in a variety of settings helping others with their social, educational, vocational, and daily living needs. After completing the course, participants will receive a certificate of completion and qualify for jobs such as Direct Support Professional, Day Program Worker, Residential counselor, Outreach Worker, Job Coach, School Paraprofessional/Advocate, Recovery Specialist, ABA Therapist, and non-profit work.
