Required Re-Certification for Pennsylvania Supports Brokers
The Office of Developmental Programs has contracted with The Institute on Disabilities at Temple University to provide this supports broker re-certification training. This cycle of one-day, online recertification classes is for those Supports Brokers certified prior to July 1, 2020 and meets the re-certification requirements set forth in the ODP Waivers effective January 1, 2023.
After you have attended the virtual classroom re-certification, you will be granted access to the final test online. Your test will consist of thirty (30) multiple choice and true/false questions. You must achieve a score of 80% or better to pass and be re-certified. You will have two attempts to achieve a score of 80% or better. The test will be available to you for ten (10) days only following your attendance in the virtual classroom.
