Certified Employment Support Professional (CESP™)

Additionally, for IME, if staff are providing Individual Supported Employment they need to earn the CESP™ through the Association of People Supporting Employment First. The IA-APSE curriculum is ACRE approved. While it cannot guarantee you will pass the Exam, it will help prepare you!  This exam is the first in the nation to certify personnel working in the field of integrated community employment.  For more information regarding the CESP™ go to http://www.apse.org/
