On-line training resource
Here is an on-line course for new job coaches.  It looks pretty good...

This training provides an orientation to the field of supported  employment. It is intended primarily for self-study by newly-hired supported employment consultants.  There are five training modules, best viewed with Internet  Explorer:
    *       Module 1: Introduction
*       Module 2: Strategies and Process
       *       Module 3: Supported Employment Language
        *       Module 4: Skill Building for Employment Consultants
        *       Bonus Module 5: Additional Resources

The full orientation may be completed in about 1 1/2 hours.  The modules are self-paced and may be started and stopped  at any time. For the newly hired supported employment consultant,  self-checks follow each module to ensure content mastery.  A final quiz should be handed in to a supervisor so he/she  may be confident in the consultant's awareness of supported  employment values, attitudes, definitions and process.
