Last updated on 10/13/2021

The Deaf Blind with Multiple Disabilities (DBMD) provider training will be virtual and offered through the Health and Human Services (HHS) Learning Portal.

This online training:

  • Provides information about DBMD program policies and operational processes

The code states that agency staff must complete the DBMD program service provider training described in the Texas Administrative Code (TAC) Rule Section 42.403(e) and (f) within six months after assuming job duties.

All new DBMD program provider agency employees must:
