    • College of Direct Supports content delivers competency-based training designed to prepare your direct support staff to go above and beyond compliance.  The CDS training is fully accredited by the National Alliance for Direct Support Professionals (NADSP). CDS training helps organizations achieve the Council on Quality and Leadership Accreditation (CQL) – and ensure that providers are ready to meet other national competency-based credentials. The CDS learning management system, Elsevier Performance Manager, allows states and organizations to track every staff member’s status as they navigate through each objective-focused lesson and achieve skills within each competency area. Tools embedded in the content delivery assist learners in bringing trusted knowledge to the workplace through discussions, on the job training checklists and reflection exercises. Alongside education, one can also document the results of any assessments, certifications, checklists, discussions, acknowledgements or surveys.
