WIPA NTDC Supplemental Training: Understanding the Plan to Achieve Self-Support (PASS) Web Course

Format: Web Course

Date(s): May 20, 2024 - June 17, 2024


This four-week web course provides practical information on the Plan to Achieve Self-Support, or PASS.  The course will include an overview of the PASS requirements for both wage and self-employment, and practical information about PASS development. There will be assessments involving questions based on the material presented in each lesson and a case study exercise. The course is largely self-directed and self-paced (there is no specific date or time you have to be online) within the four-week time frame.


During this training, you will learn:

  • The purpose of the PASS work incentive;
  • How to screen beneficiaries as possible PASS candidates;
  • The specific elements that comprise the PASS application;
  • Considerations for PASS plans involving self-employment goals; and
  • The steps involved in development and maintenance of a PASS plan.


Course Requirements


Each of the subject lessons will require you to engage in a pre-recorded media presentation or alternate format including other supplemental reading material to review. You will be required to complete an interactive case study on a pass/fail basis, a short assessment at the end of each lesson, and a discussion board assignment.


You must complete all three of the following course requirements by the last day of the course to receive completion credit:


  1. Achieving a score of 80% or higher on each of the lesson assessments (with two attempts provided);
  2. Completing the interactive case study (pass/fail); and
  3. Posting one question or comment to the discussion board.
