Free Online Self-Employment Course for Vocational Rehabilitation Professionals

The Center on Self-Employment, Business Ownership and Telecommuting has developed an online self-employment course designed specifically for Vocational Rehabilitation professionals.

Self-Employment Through the VR Lens

Self-Employment Through the VR Lens is a free, self-paced, seven-module series that guides Vocational Rehabilitation professionals through the steps to support self-employment, from intake/eligibility through case closure.

Modules 1 and 2 introduce self-employment, highlight its potential benefits and opportunities, and explain the steps to become self-employed. Modules 3-7 follow the VR service delivery model, addressing self-employment considerations at every stage (e.g., intake and eligibility, IPE development, etc.).

Designed specifically for VR professionals, the series explores the VR counselor’s role and responsibilities when supporting self-employment candidates and provides practical information, tools, and examples. Professionals are encouraged to complete all seven modules in the series but have the option to complete the ones they need the most.

Time: 1 hour per module (average)

CRCs: 1 CRC per module (up to 7 CRCs for the course)
