This course is only available to SSD/SSB providers who meet the qualifications to provide this service.


  • SPeCTRUM 2.0 Training: ODP requires all staff in AAW and ACAP complete SPeCTRUM 2.0 prior to working with BSASP participants (click on title to be redirected to this page). 
  • BSASP Required Systematic Skill Building Training: ODP requires all Skill Building Specialists to complete the BSASP Required Systematic Skill Building Training as part of the Skill Building Specialists qualification process prior to working with participants. See links below. NOTE: *The staff seeking qualifications for SSB need to submit a fictitious (i.e., NOT on an actual participant) Skill Building Plan, GAS chart and datasheet into MyODP for approval prior to developing SBP, GAS charts and datasheets for participants.
