Training Modules

Telecommuting Part I: This module focuses on the basics of telecommuting, including learning about the tasks, technology, and logistics that are often involved in remote work. We will discuss person-centered considerations, such as interests, skills, attributes, ideal working conditions, and supports, all of which help to determine if telecommuting is a good fit for a jobseeker.

Telecommuting Part II: This module will provide information on how to best support the teleworking employee as well as the employer. We will explore funding decisions for common tools and resources that may need to be purchased as part of a plan. Finally, we will learn about when and how someone might consider self-employment through telecommuting as an opportunity for success.
