Welcome! Continued Education training is offered by the Franklin County Board of Developmental Disabilities (FCBDD) to:
- assist providers with ongoing maintenance of provider certification,
- meet the eight-hour annual training requirement, and/or
- develop skills for enhanced service provision.
NOTE: Due to space limitations, the annually required “MUI-UI-Rights-Alerts” and “Self Advocacy-Person Centered Planning-Positive Intervention Culture-Self Determination-Behavior Support” courses offered at Administration are “mainly” open to Non-Agency Providers, and a limited number of staff from each agency. Still, if space permits, agencies may register additional staff, and/or representatives assigned to staff training, to complete the course in order to gather materials for creating their own presentation for training direct-care staff on behalf of their agency.
IMPORTANT: On-line MUI-UI and Rights training is available. Additional information for Agency Provider training is still available upon request through the FCBDD MUI department, at 614-464-2743.
Please see below for the current classroom course offerings, to include “Annually Required” and “optional” Continued Education sessions. The Instructions for submission are found on each form, and there are no fees charged for attendance.

C.P.R. and Standard First Aid Offerings: For a list of local sites offering the courses, we suggest you refer to The American Red Cross, American Heart Association, American Safety & Health Institute, or equivalent agency websites. FCBDD does not offer renewal courses to the public at the Administration Building.
NOTE: An “in-person skills assessment with an approved trainer”, is required per DODD Rule 5123:2-2-01 section (D)(17)(e)&(f), therefore online CPR & First Aid courses are not accepted for these requirements. * If an agency offers “partial/blended” online training, to include a skills test completed in person, with an Instructor confirming the trainee’s identity and course completion, DODD will permit that certificate, as long as supporting documentation is submitted for such.
