Certification on Vocational Rehabilitation Program Evaluation and Quality Assurance
NOTE: The application period for the seventh certification training closed on December 31st, 2019. Applicants will be notified of their status the first week in January. The cohort will begin January 8-9. We will announce future open application periods as that information becomes available. Please join our email list if you would like to be notified about PEQA updates. Thank you.
The PEQATAC has developed a certification program Certification on Vocational Rehabilitation Program Evaluation and Quality Assurance that will result in increasing the numbers and qualifications of program evaluators and quality assurance specialists in State VR agencies.
Participants must be able to commit to an expedited timeline with a goal of completing the program in under 9 months rather than the original 18-month timeline. The PEQA coursework will be streamlined for this rigorous timeline.
Completion of a capstone project is required in order to successfully complete the program.
Four options will be available for the capstone projects:
- Individual Capstone
- designed and implemented by one participant in their state VR agency
- Team Capstone Within Agency
- designed and implemented by a team of up to 3 PEQA participants within the same state VR agency
- Team Capstone Inter-Agency
- designed and implemented by a team of up to 3 PEQA participants representing different state VR agencies
- Team Capstone Inter-Agency National
- designed and implemented by a team of PEQA participants representing different state VR agencies on a topic relevant to ALL state VR programs, e.g., programmatic efficiency with data entry by field staff
Participant selection for the certification program will be based, in part, on the considered recommendation of their employing State VR agencies.
PEQATAC is no longer accepting applications for the seventh cohort. Applicants will be notified of their status during the first week in January.
We will also share upcoming open application periods when they are scheduled.
