Professional Education and Training
An important part of Project SEARCH’s mission is education through which we can share best practices and promote continuous improvement of our programs. Our goal is to provide the tools and technical assistance needed to maximize employment outcomes for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Project SEARCH Academy
Project SEARCH Academy offers a collection of fast-paced online training
courses that deliver invaluable information to help you implement the program model to its full
potential. These courses are available to personnel at licensed Project SEARCH sites.
