Welcome to the ACRE website!

ACRE is a national membership organization for trainers and educators who work in the field of employment for people with disabilities. We share a common mission of advocacy through education to improve the quality of employment services for people with disabilities.
Most trainers in our field have few opportunities to share ideas and learn from other training professionals. As a community of practice, ACRE members come together yearly and also communicate via email and phone throughout the year to share information and resources related to training. 
ACRE has also focused on the use of competency-based training. Since 2005, Employment Servies Competencies have been established. In 2018, ACRE added Competencies with an Emphasis on Customized Employment (CE). Competency-based training is designed for professionals working in employment services and is intended to raise the national service delivery standard. (For more information on Competencies and Competency-based training, go to the Competencies tab.)
