Direct Support Professional Training (DSPT)
The Direct Support Professional Training (DSPT) is a competency-based training program that is mandatory for all Direct Support Professionals (DSP) working in licensed community care facilities vendored by regional centers. The DSPT is divided into two equal segments of 35 hours each to be completed in successive years for a total of 70 hours. DSPs who are mandated to meet the training requirement, may opt to meet it by passing the Challenge Test for each 35-hour training program.
