The Department for Behavioral Health, Developmental and Intellectual Disabilities will approve the initial 10-hour training curriculum for the Community Support Associate (CSA) as written in the Kentucky Administrative Regulations (see "908 KAR 2:250" in Related Links).
DBHDID requires the use of this rubric and related documents to ensure providers' submission of all necessary materials.
