The Job Trainer will accompany ICS clients to their job site in the community, in order to train and support them as the client learns their role. The Job Trainer guides the client in areas such as how to complete the duties of a job, how to prioritize tasks, how to communicate with managers and co-workers, and how to get transportation to and from work.
