SDE Training Payments

SDE Training Payments

Public Partnerships, in partnerships with the NJ Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD), is excited to announce that Self-Directed Employees (SDEs), who complete all mandatory trainings and CPR/First Aid recertification courses, are able to be reimbursed for time spent completing training.

How does this work?

A SDE that meets the criteria of having completed the required trainings, and has not been reimbursed, can submit the 'Training Certification Form' found here. This form must show training completion dates and be signed by the Employer or Authorized Representative and the Self-Directed Employee. 

Once verified, the SDE will receive a one-time fixed payment based on the average time needed for completion and average cost of a community-based CPR/FA Certification class, as determined by DDD. An employee can only be paid for the training once, regardless of how many individuals they work for.

CPR and First Aid Certification are required to be completed once every two years. A SDE that meets the criteria of having completed the recertifications can submit the CPR/First Aid Recertification Form found here. This form must show recertification completion dates and be signed by the Employer or the Authorized Representative and Self-Directed Employee.

Once verified, the SDE will receive a reimbursement payment for the completion of the CPR/First Aid Recertification class, as determined by DDD. An employee can only be paid for these two certifications once every two years, regardless of how many individuals they serve.
