Waiver of Delay in Reporting DSP Training to HCWR

If a Provider does not submit the DSP's name to the HCWR through SIU within the 30-day time frame from the training completion date, the submittal will not be accepted by the HCWR and the person will not be designated as a DD Aide.  A request for a waiver to this training requirement must be submitted to and approved by the Division of Developmental Disabilities.

The Division of Developmental Disabilities will base its approval of the waiver request on the length of delay and reasons for delay.  Providers may be required to complete additional DSP training up to repeating the entire 120-hour DSP training program. The documentation of any required additional training must be maintained by the Provider with the signed Illinois Health Care Worker Registry Application form.
