Easterseals Project Action Consulting Now Offering Paratransit Manager Certification
Posted on June, 2nd 2017
Easterseals Project Action Consulting has announced a new Certified ADA Paratransit Manager (CAPM) program. Certified through the Center for Urban Transportation Research at the University of South Florida, the program provides paratransit managers of all experience levels with the credential. Credits earned through ESPAC courses, other professional organizations, and work experience can be applied toward the total 60 hours needed for initial certification. Complete details on certification requirements, fees, and testing are available on Easterseals Project Action Consulting website.
This credential is important because Paratransit Managers need to have a comprehensive understanding of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements, transportation service, human resources, and eligibility and operations appeals processes. Managers dedicated to going beyond the minimum requirements will also want to have a firm understanding of emergency preparedness, governance, and public engagement.
