The Arc of Evansville is happy to announce that Tracy Stricker, Manager of The Arc of Evansville’s Community Job Link program, has recently received certification as a Certified Employment Support Professional (CESP). The CESP certification is the first national credential to set and evaluate the skills and competence needed to work as an employment professional. It has set the standard for employment professionals serving individuals with disabilities in finding and maintaining employment. CESP holders must pass a nationally accepted exam, thereby meeting or exceeding professional competency standards. Tracy is one of just 24 individuals in the state of Indiana to hold the certification and the only person in Southwest Indiana.
