Upcoming Adult Learning Principles Training Opportunities for Approved Trainers

As a reminder, all trainers in the Generalist, Out of State and Corporate trainer categories are required to complete 12 hours of continuing education or college coursework related to his/her approved training topics/expertise during the 2019 calendar year. An additional three hours of training must be specific to adult learning principles (for a total of 15 hours) as defined on the ADULT LEARNING PRINCIPLES List of Acceptable Training document of The Nevada Registry.

Several in-person options are currently available to help you meet the Adult Learning Principles component of the continuing education requirement: 

Community-Based Training
Trainer Professional Learning Community: Using Technology and Other Training Techniques to Enhance Learning
Date: April 4, 2019
Time: 9 am – Noon; 3 hours
Trainer: Teresa Byington, University of Nevada Cooperative Extension
The Trainer Professional Learning Community is open to Nevada Registry Approved Trainers. To register, email Teresa Byington at byingtont@unce.unr.edu by April 2, 2019. 

NevAEYC Conference
The NevAEYC Early Childhood Conference is April 25 - 27, 2019 in Las Vegas. Two separate sessions will be offered as part of the Trainer Track. Though the days and times have not yet been confirmed, both can be applied toward the adult learning principles component of the continuing education requirement for trainers. Each session will be offered for 1.5 hours in length. Attend both sessions to fully meet the three-hour requirement. Please check the final conference program for confirmed days and times.

Session 1: Using Adult Learning Principles to Enhance Training Sessions
Trainer: Teresa Byington, University of Nevada Cooperative Extension

Session 2: Staying on Target: Competency-Based Objectives
Trainer: Theresa Vadala, Child Care Training Consultants

Be sure to check the Registry’s Training Calendar frequently for additional opportunities that may become available throughout the year. It is now easier than ever to know which training sessions will meet the requirement for adult learning. Those that do will be flagged with this message:

This training can be applied toward the adult learning principle component of the continuing education requirement for approved trainers. If the training is less than three hours in length, multiple training sessions will need to be completed to meet the requirement in full.
