How to Become a Provider

Provider certification is managed by the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities (DODD).  Visit their website to learn about becoming a provider.

You will need to get a background check in order to become a provider. Clark DD offers these for staff and community providers in our HR office. You can contact us at 937.346.0745 to schedule a background check.

Prior to applying to DODD for certification, you must have 8 hours of initial training plus CPR/FA. You can take the free initial 8-hour provider training online at DODD’s MyLearning.  Additionally, billing and service documentation training can be found here for new providers. This is required within 60 days of first providing services after becoming certified.

Clark DD offers a variety of training to help you get and keep your certification. If you have questions about training, contact Bonnie Bazill-Davis at 937-346-0744.

Be sure to visit our Resources page for lots of help and information, including forms you can use for reporting. If you have questions, please contact our Provider Liaison, Sarah Hess. She is here for you!
