Job Candidates get paid a training wage by the CRP. They are paid when they perform tasks at the business site that has agreed to do a Work Adjustment Training and a Work Readiness Assessment. Paying a training wage further mimics the experiences of competitive integrated employment.

The training wage worksheet needs to be downloaded, completed and turned in to the local Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) Services office of the respective provider for each Job Candidate (JC) receiving the service. A copy of the JC's paycheck and pay stub needs to be included with the request. This reimbursement rate is effective only for the following partners that have been preapproved and based on the effective date listed. 

If a provider is not on this list, the reimbursement rate has not been pre approved and IVRS will default to reimbursing at the rate of $7.25 per hour.
