Continuing Education

This requirement is met by submitting documentation (copies of transcripts and/or certificates that  include hours awarded) for each course, seminar, workshop, conference, etc. you have attended that relates to adult learning and/or early care and education. Continuing education must have been taken since the date of your initial designation or since your last renewal (whichever is most recent). Continuing Education taken before you received your designation will not count toward this requirement. See chart above for required hours.

Evidence of Having Provided Training

This requirement is met by submitting documentation (copies of participant sign-in sheets) for one state-approved training you have taught each year  since your initial designation or last renewal (whichever is most recent). Trainings provided before you received your designation will not count toward this requirement.

For example, if you are a Trainer I and your expiration date is June 6, 2015, you must provide three sign-in sheets, one for each of the following:

  • One training that you provided between June 6, 2012 and June 6, 2013; and
  • One training that you provided between June 6, 2013 and June 6, 2014; and
  • One training that you provided between June 6, 2014 and June 6, 2015
