Elsevier and the College Of Direct Support

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, has entered into an agreement with United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) to offer the College of Direct Support online education and training, included in the DirectCourse curricula portfolio, at a discounted rate for UCP affiliates in good standing. The College of Direct Support online curriculum consists of more than 50 courses for direct support professionals and is managed in collaboration with Elsevier and the University of Minnesota’s Research and Training Center on Community Living.

The College of Direct Support curriculum offers another way for organizations to improve care, build relationships with and retain staff, and advance careers. Offering training such as this helps staff improve and become better care workers and caregivers.

“The DirectCourse/College of Direct Support curriculum is an effective tool for UCP affiliates of all sizes,” said Bill Tapp, Director, Elsevier’s DirectCourse. “It provides support for smaller organizations that may not have the resources for specific, on-site training, while larger organizations can benefit greatly from the convenience of an online curriculum, offering multiple employees from various locations around the country localized online instruction.”
