Information regarding updates and changes to the Interview & Selection process.

Rutan Interviewer Recertification Training

Over 4,800 individuals statewide have completed the CMS Interviewer Certification Training within OneNet!

This was a first step to sunset the Rutan Interviewing certifications which are now vastly outdated with the State's progression toward an electronic and more robust process for structured interviews and alignment with the Comprehensive Employment Plan (CEP). Structured interviews will continue with the current CMS Interview procedures and what was formerly known as Rutan Interviewer Training shall be CMS Interviewer Training.

Rutan Certified individuals will need to complete the OneNet CMS Interviewer Certification Training if they have not already done so to be involved in interviews from 01/01/2022 forward. CMS will archive all Rutan Interviewer Certifications on 12/31/21 and the CMS Interviewer Certification will be required for all interviewers.
