CM Qualifications

I'm concerned that there are many BIS case managers currently providing excellent service to our population that do not have a bachelors degree. It would be tragic to lose the experience, relationships, and skill these case managers provide in the service of our population simply because they don't have a degree. Many professions are seeing the benefits of experience in lieu of formal education. With the ongoing struggle for the state to fill needed positions with qualified persons it would seem necessary to consider a provision to replace education with an equivalent level of experience.
