The Region IX Rehabilitation Continuing Education Program (RCEP IX) has been located in the College of Education at San Diego State University since 1974.

Authorized by the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 as amended, the program is funded through a cooperative agreement from the U.S. Department of Education's Rehabilitation Services Administration.

RCEP IX provides training and continuing education opportunities to personnel of the seven vocational rehabilitation agencies, client assistance programs, independent living centers and Tribal Vocational Rehabilitation programs. These entities include American Samoa, Arizona, California, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, Hawaii, and Nevada.

The goal of the RCEP is to assure opportunities for employment, independence and the integration of people with disabilities into the community by expanding the training, education, and development strategies for rehabilitation personnel through a managed system of continuing education.

 

Objective of Region IX RCEP General Program

The Rehabilitation Continuing Education Program has four objectives in order to attain their goal.

  • The first objective is to determine the human resource needs in each constituent agency and develop relationships to refine human resource needs that respond to RSA and the agency's Comprehensive System of Personnel Development strategies.

  • Secondly, the program implements education efforts for newly employed state agency personnel at the administrative, supervisory, professional, and support levels n order to develop needed skills for effective agency performance.

  • The third objective is to expand continuing education activities for experienced state agency personnel to upgrade their knowledge, skills, and abilities and to develop mastery of new program developments dealing with significant issues, priorities, and legislative initiatives of the state/federal rehabilitation delivery system.

  • The fourth objective is to increase continuing education activities for personnel of IL, CAP, and Section 130 programs who cooperate with state V units to upgrade their knowledge, skills, and abilities and to develop mastery of new program developments dealing with significant issues, priorities, and legislative thrusts of the state/federal rehabilitation delivery system.

The four objectives set the direction for RCEP IX and build and maintain a comprehensive system of personnel development approach throughout Region IX.
