IAC Training Institute
The IAC Training Institute offers courses relevant to individuals and agencies with developmental disabilities. In addition to mandated training such as AMAP and SCIP-R, IAC offers curated courses that enhance both knowledge and skills of agency staff from direct care to the executive level. In-person training is provided at the IAC offices and member agency locations throughout New York City and the surrounding area. In addition, training is provided online on the Zoom platform so that persons from throughout New York State can now access these courses without leaving their own location. The IAC training rooms are equipped with the latest audio-visual technology and are available for rental.
InterAgency Transportation Solutions (IATS)
InterAgency Council envisioned and designed IATS as a viable contract transportation system, and implemented the project in December 2006. It had been identified in prior years that the state of contracted transportation in the five boroughs, where private bus companies provided to/from transportation service to OPWDD-certified Day Habilitation programs, was in a state of disarray.
The IATS project's purpose was to establish a transportation oversight entity to coordinate/oversee the daily transportation of 6000 plus adult individuals with developmental disabilities daily. A project would initiate performance standards that bus companies must emulate in their day-to-day operations.
