Now Accepting Applications for the 2019 Adult Learning Academy

Please note that the application period for the 2019 ALA is now closed. 

Two Adult Learning Academies (ALA) have been scheduled for 2019; one in Las Vegas and the other in Reno.

The ALA is aligned with The Nevada Registry’s Quality Assurance System (QAS) and is designed to provide individuals with less than 15 hours of previous training delivery experience the fundamental principles of adult learning which contribute to the delivery of high-quality training sessions. Selected individuals will participate in 15 hours of Registry-approved training over the course of five – seven weeks (depending on location). Upon successful completion of the Academy, graduates will have the tools to begin delivering training to the Early Childhood community and the necessary hours of experience needed to initially qualify as a trainer with The Nevada Registry. The cost to participate is $75 per person.
