How does the COG assist providers in obtaining training?
The COG offers a northern and southern provider training for small provider agencies and individual providers annually. This training includes Incidents Adversely Affecting Health and Safety (MUI/UI), Individual Rights training as well as covering other timely training needs. We offer initial training to new independent providers once they are selected by an individual. In addition, the COG provides trainings 3-4 times per year on current pertinent areas. These trainings are open to county board and provider staff. Agency specific training requests are considered on an individual basis.
