Self-Employment Courses

Self-Employment through the VR Lens

The following seven-module series provides Vocational Rehabilitation counselors with information about their role in guiding the self-employment process. The series begins with two modules focused on the basics of self-employment; what it is and how a person becomes self-employed. The remaining modules follow the VR service delivery model, addressing self-employment considerations at every stage (e.g., intake and eligibility, IPE development, etc.). The goal of this series is to build a VR professional's confidence in working with individuals pursuing self-employment and provide practical information, tools, and examples. Counselors are encouraged to complete all seven modules in the series but have the option to complete the ones they need the most. CRCs are available for each module.
