The ICAN JOB certificate of completion is an employment preparation and workplace skills program designed for individuals with autism and/or intellectual disabilities, but is open to anyone who can benefit. Courses in this program are designed to meet the needs of employers, specifically addressing concerns in the areas of “soft skills”, communication, basic math, and understanding of computer processes and software. This program does not lead to a specific career pathway, but rather prepares students to be valuable employees who are prepared with the skills employers most desire. As part of the program, students will perform a personal assessment of strengths and interests to assist them in examining potential careers or career laddering. Following completion of this program, students may continue into an educational pathway leading to a Certificate of Achievement or Associates Degree in the career of their choice.
