Admissions are now open for the 2nd batch of the RCI-CBID certification programme. Interested candidates may apply here: RCI-CBID-Application – CBM (cbmindia.org).
The Rehabilitation Council of India (RCI) partnered with the University of Melbourne, Australia, to launch the first successful competency-based certificate course through CBM India on Community Based Inclusive Development (CBID) in 2021. The training programme provides certification to the grassroots rehabilitation workers at the community level, who can then work alongside the ASHA and Anganwadi workers. The course focuses on a) Assessment and Intervention of Persons with Disabilities; b) Community-inclusive Development; and c) Professional Behaviour. The National Board of Examination in Rehabilitation (NBER) will conduct examinations and certify the participants after the 6-months course.
For the comprehensive inclusion of people with disabilities, the RCI-CBID programme develops a group of frontline community-based workers to help build the community’s resilience, keeping in mind the needs of persons with disabilities. The course utilises a competency-based curriculum to ensure the highest quality of emerging CBID workers. This programme will bring in a new workforce to meet the growing needs of the community.
Registration closes on the 7th of August 2022.
