The Maine Department of Health and Human Services (Office of Adult Mental Health and Office of Adults with Physical and Cognitive Disabilities) and the Maine Department of Labor (Bureau of Rehabilitation Services) is partners with Syntiro, a nonprofit located in Readfield, to provide professional development for employment specialists. A statewide calendar of events provides information regarding upcoming ACRE Employment Specialist certification opportunities and advanced topical training.
The program collaborates closely with the Institute on Community Inclusion at UMass Boston and KFI in Millinocket and Griffin-Hammis Associates conducts the face to face five day ACRE certified ESC trainings.
Syntiro has provided statewide professional development since 1986 and we have increasingly utilized state of the art technology including teleconferencing and webinars to deliver a wide range of learning opportunities across the state and nation. Its headquarters are centrally located in Readfield and key staff are located in home offices across the state. Current initiatives represent a wide range of topics and funding streams.
Project updates and the training calendar are available on this site. For more information, please contact Project Assistant Joyce Lang at (207) 522-2315 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
