MT INVEST, a 15 hour web-based self-paced course, is available to employment partners and the public throughout the State of Montana!

Individuals with disabilities have many talents and interests that can contribute to a business, but they can also face additional challenges to obtaining and retaining good jobs. To create an opportunity for that person to be most successful, there are several activities and/or steps to identify employment options that are a good match to the person’s skills, interests, and workplace preference (likes quiet or likes noise and activity for example). The curriculum and testing will help learners develop the skill of facilitating Employment Supports, as well as inspire and motivate employment staff to new levels of performance and professionalism. Whether you are helping a family member or friend, or whether you are or plan to be an employment specialist professional, this information can help you bring successful results to those you are assisting.
