Tip of the Week (Trainers): Certificates of Completion
Posted Monday, August 8, 2016 by Shelly Nye
Each training approval confirmation email you receive contains links to a pre-printed certificate and attendance sheet associated with that particular event. The pre-printed Certificate of Completion contains all of the details of the training including the number of approved child care training hours, assigned approval code and a statement verifying when a course meets a specific licensing requirement (when applicable). The pre-printed Training Attendance/Sign-In Sheet includes much of the same information. Not only is this a time saver for you by taking some of the legwork out of your training preparation process, it helps to reduce approval code errors and ensures that we have all the information needed to conduct our post-event data entry.
If you opt not to use the pre-populated tools and find that you’ve made a mistake on a certificate and it’s too late to reprint them (i.e., you notice it at the training), please be sure to initial any changes you make on the certificates in order to help Child Care Licensing staff easily verify and validate the training information (date, time and approval code must match the information contained in the Registry database).
