New Training Approval Policy Regarding In-Home Training
Posted Thursday, August 21, 2014 by Shelly Nye
As of January 1, 2015, the Registry will no longer approve training that occurs in the private residences of registered trainers. This decision is based on the potential health, safety and liability risks that are present when individuals are invited into the private home of a trainer. Trainers who have traditionally conducted training in their homes can still provide training, so long as it occurs in a public location. Numerous training location alternatives are available; often at low or no cost, such as libraries, community centers, churches, child care facilities, etc.
The Ethical Obligations, Responsibilities and Professional Expectations for Registered Trainers agreement has been updated to reflect this change. Current trainers will not be required to resubmit a signed agreement at this time; however, all individuals registering as trainers from this point forward will be required to sign the updated form (dated August 2014) at the time of registration.
