IM-150 08/06/01 REVISIONS TO INCOME MAINTENANCE TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT HOME PAGE
|REVISIONS TO INCOME MAINTENANCE TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT HOME PAGE
|The Income Maintenance (IM) Training and
Development home page is revised. These revisions are a result of
suggestions by staff. The DFS Intranet provides an effective method
of communicating with staff regarding IM Training and Development information.
The appearance of the home page as well as the content is revised. Following is a summary of the revisions:
The schedule for Income Maintenance training is accessible from the home page. Class dates and locations are listed. The schedule for FY 2002 is now available.
Note: The training schedules for FY 2002 are tentative. The budget cutbacks and hiring freeze may cause changes to these schedules. Cancellations and other changes will be posted immediately on the IM Training and Development home page.
A description of all the Income Maintenance training is accessible from the home page. The course descriptions include: number of training hours, prerequisites, course description, course objectives, and course time frames.
The FAMIS Supervisor's Guide is accessible from the training home page. As revisions are made to the FAMIS Supervisor's Guide, staff will be notified by memo.
Information from the Supervisor's Guide: Developing Front-Line Staff is accessible from the training home page. The information available includes:
Revisions have been made to the information contained in the Supervisor's Guide: Developing Front-Line Staff that were distributed to supervisors in March and April. The sections of the Guide that are revised are as follows: Interview Observation Checklists are separated into three different files; Coaching Conferences - Making Correct Expedited Service Decisions and Principles of Effective Interviewing; and Food Stamp Program Week Objectives.
The Supervisor's Supplements to the OJT Guides are accessible from the training home page.
The Caseworker Reference Guide (CRG) is in the process of undergoing a major revision. When the CRG revision is complete, the entire CRG will be posted on the training home page. The CRG will only be available on the Intranet for a short period of time. This will give staff the ability to print the CRG if they want an updated version of it. After the CRG is removed from the Intranet, subsequent revisions will be posted so staff can print the revised pages and update their copies of the CRG. At that time, hard copies of the CRG revisions will no longer be sent to the Area Offices for distribution to counties. Staff will be notified by memo when the CRG is available on the Intranet and as revisions are posted.
A link is provided on the home page to the Sneak Previews.
A link is provided on the home page to the Take 10's.
The training unit is in the process of developing training lessons that will be accessible from the training home page. Staff will be advised as lessons become available.
The training package on Temporary Medicaid for Pregnant Women is accessible from the training home page.
Staff will be advised when additional training packages are posted.
The Training Organizational Chart is accessible from the training home page.
When making certain selections (e.g. Coaching Conferences) on the IM Training and Development home page, a dialog box will appear. The dialog box will ask if you want to "save it to a disk" or "open it." Choose "open it" and click on OK. This will open Adobe Acrobat Reader and you will see the file you selected. Once you are finished with the selection, close the window by clicking on the "X" in the upper right hand corner of the screen.
