Adult Services

There are three Adult Services Training programs within the Academy, one of which is under SDSU’s Social Policy Institute:  the In Home Supportive Services Training Academy, and two of which are under SDSU’s Academy for Professional Excellence: MASTER/Adult Protective Services Training, and the San Diego Imperial County Geriatric Education Center (SDIGEC).  

The In Home Supportive Services Training Academy (IHSSTA) serves all 58 counties and is California’s statewide training provider for all aspects of the In Home Supportive Services program. Training participants include county social services workers, social work supervisors, quality assurance staff, administrative law judges, CDSS staff, and other staff designated by CDSS and the counties. The IHSSTA designs and delivers competency-based training to increase the quality and outcomes of care for those served.   

MASTER (Multi-disciplinary Adult Services Training and Evaluation for Results) is a training program designed to provide a competency-based multidisciplinary training to Adult Services workers and their partners. Our overarching goal is the professionalization of Adult Service workers to ensure that abused and vulnerable elders receive high quality, effective interventions and services.

The SDIGEC (San Diego/Imperial Geriatric Education Center) is a training collaborative generation of geriatric health workers in San Diego and Imperial County, with an initial focus on Alzheimer’s and related dementias (ADRD) and the chronic conditions that impact memory loss.
