Professional Service Coordinator (PSC) Program


 

About the PSC Program

The Professional Service Coordinator Program is a unique online professional development opportunity specifically designed for service coordinators. It is offered through a collaboration between the American Association of Service Coordinators and The Ohio State University Office of Geriatrics and Interprofessional Aging Studies. As partners, we are dedicated to furthering the educational development and careers of service coordinators to ensure the most responsive services are provided to older adults, families and persons with disabilities residing in service-enhanced, affordable housing environments.

The Professional Service Coordinator (PSC) Program is available to anyone interested in education and professional development in the field of service coordination. The program consists of 12 core modules on the topics of communication, diversity, motivational interviewing and more.

All modules are web-based, allowing participants to complete the training from anywhere at any time.

Through the PSC program, you have the option of completing the full program requirements to earn the designation of Professional Service Coordinator, or you can complete individual modules to earn training contact hours.
