The RTC nationally validated Frontline Supervisor competency set which identifies the knowledge skills and attitudes needed by individuals in these jobs is available for download by chapters and members of The Arc. Workforce development tools should be based upon validated competency sets that are then customized to fit the service needs of individuals and populations of individuals served within an organization.

In addition, the National Alliance for Direct Support Professionals (NADSP), an organization that envisions a world where people with intellectual and other disabilities live community-based lives of their choosing supported by a highly qualified direct support workforce with the knowledge, skills, and values needed to support them in achieving their life goals, has develop a list of competencies that DSPs should have to effectively meet the needs of those they work with. These tools can help ensure you are hiring the right individual for your needs and to ensure that you are ready and prepared to meet their needs. These materials are co-branded by RTC and The Arc.
