The Trainer Credential (formerly Trainer Approval) and Training Alignment and Approval (formerly Training Approval) are designed to strengthen Colorado’s early childhood training system. The application for a Trainer Credential is now available in the PDIS and can be accessed in the My Profile section under Early Childhood Credentials. Currently, both of these are voluntary processes; however, in the future, to earn points toward the Ongoing Professional Development component of the EC Professional Credential, individuals will need to participate in approved trainings provided by a credentialed trainer. The Early Childhood Professional Development team and the Office of Early Childhood at the Colorado Department of Human Services are partnering to develop a plan to implement the Training Alignment and Approval process once the online approval system is available within PDIS. It is our priority to ensure that professional development providers have adequate time to participate in these systems and that professionals have adequate access to approved trainings before requiring approval for the purpose of the EC Professional Credential.
