New (Free) Online Self-Employment Course for Vocational Rehabilitation Professionals

The Center on Self-Employment, Business Ownership and Telecommuting has developed a new online self-employment course, Core Self-Employment Concepts, that provides information and strategies for supporting each step in the self-employment path. This six-module course begins with a module on strategies for exploring the possibility of self-employment. The remaining modules cover the five steps of self-employment: Business Concept Development, Business Feasibility, Business Planning, Business Launch, and Maintain the Business. Designed specifically for VR professionals, this series will build your confidence in working with individuals pursuing self-employment and provide practical information, tools, and examples. Each module takes approximately one hour to complete (up to 6 CRCs available for the course). You are encouraged to complete all six modules but have the option to complete the ones you need the most.
