What's New

 The Colorado Department of Education and the Colorado Department of Human Services have launched the Training Alignment Process (TAP) in PDIS. When professional development organizations and individual trainers participate in TAP, their training aligns with the Colorado Competencies and meets best practice standards for adult learning. In addition, TAP training is posted and available in the PDIS course catalog.  

1.7.2020 We are excited to announce that Standard Precautions has been added to the PDIS Course CatalogThis course will meet both pre-service and annual requirements for standard precautions training. Also, this course is still available in person through approved training vendors. Stay tuned for the Spanish version coming in the spring of 2020. 

12.18.19 Changes are coming to the Colorado Coaching Credential. Beginning March 1, 2020, the Colorado Department of Education and the Colorado Department of Human Services will be sunsetting Levels II and III of the Colorado Coaching Credential.

12.5.19 Beginning in mid-March 2020, families will be able to respond to the 2020 Census. Making sure every kid counts in the 2020 census is one of the most important things we can do for our kids and our communities. When kids aren't counted in the census, it hurts our communities and reduces funding for important programs that help our kids and families. Census questionnaires go out in March of 2020.

9.3.19 Another new course is now available: "2019-2020 Child Care and Preschool Immunization." This is a 1.5 hour Pre-Service and Orientation course and must be taken annually by designated staff who manage children's immunization records. Locate this course in the PDIS Course Catalog

8.27.19  All Colorado Coaching Credential documents are now located on PDIS. All new and renewal Coaching Credential Application materials can be sent to ecpd@cde.state.co.us


5.31.19 We are excited to announce another new course: "Working with an Early Childhood Mental Health Consultant," which counts towards Level 2 clock hours and social-emotional ongoing professional development. This course, along with all other courses, is available in the PDIS Course Catalog.

5.20.19 View a printable list of all PDIS courses. This course list also includes which courses count for social-emotional clock hours, if they are eligible for Level 2 and if the course is available in Spanish.

 Some of the logos in the PDIS Course Catalog have been updated to reflect the content of a course instead of whether it’s eligible for Level 2 clock hours. Level 2 courses aren’t going away; they just have a new logo.

4.5.19 Stay up-to-date on Colorado Shines Brighter Preschool Development Grant (PDG B-5) news and activities. Visit the Office of Early Childhood website for more information and to view webinars and meeting dates.

4.1.19 The Colorado Shines PDIS is celebrating a birthday this month. On April 15, 2019 the PDIS will be four years old. Happy Birthday PDIS!
