Supported Competitive Employment for Individuals with Mental Illness
APSE and VCU-RRTC are partnering to offer APSE members a $25 discount on the regular registration fee for the Supported Competitive Employment for Individuals with Mental Illness online course. Instead of the regular registration fee of $325, APSE members pay $300. Of this $300, $50 will go to APSE to support its mission of training tomorrow's employment leaders. Please note that if you drop the course, this $50 is not refundable. You must be a current APSE member with a valid APSE membership number to receive this discount. If you have questions, please contact Dr. Katherine Inge at firstname.lastname@example.org.
