Trainer Statistics:

As of December 31, 2013:
  • 615 registered trainers and sponsors (total)*
  • 320 registered ECE trainers**
* New trainer criteria was implemented in June 2013. As of December 2013, only those trainers who have met the new criteria (i.e., have submitted an updated trainer agreement and completed an online training in adult learning principles) are considered “registered”*. As a result, the number of registered trainers at the end of December is much lower than the total reported at the end of November 2013.

**ECE trainers are individuals who are currently working in ECE, have previously worked in ECE and/or have a degree in ECE. ECE Trainers are required to apply for Career Ladder placement.
