IDHS/SUPR Sponsored Trainings: Updated Information

To adhere to the CDC guidelines related to physical distancing and the size of groups, IDHS/SUPR has updated its training offerings scheduled through June 30, 2020. Several of the trainings were scheduled to be delivered in-person trainings. Given the circumstances, that is no longer advisable.

After discussions with program developers, we have determined that several of the trainings can be delivered by webinar. In some instances, the length of the training may change and one of the trainings has been rescheduled and will be conducted at a later date.

As a reminder, before you register, you must create an account with Prevention First unless you have already established one. If you have an account, please review instructions for registering.

Instructions for setting up an account:

  • go to www.prevention.org
  • on the right side of page, click on LOG IN OR REGISTER

After you register for a training, you will receive a confirmation email with a link. You may also need to complete the webinar registration to receive your webinar login information. You will find updated registration information for each training on the Prevention First website. As shared in the March 2020 Smart Alert - Supportive Services Enhancements and Revised Billing Procedure - organizations can bill Community Intervention for their staff's participation in IDHS/SUPR sponsored trainings. These trainings are free and CEUs are offered. We hope that you and your staff take advantage of this opportunity and find these trainings beneficial in the provision of your treatment services. We highly encourage you to share this updated training information with your staff. If you have questions, please direct them to Tracey Loggins at Tracey.Loggins@illinois.gov.
