The next Adult Learning Academy (ALA) has been scheduled and will begin in January 2024.
The Adult Learning Academy (ALA or “the Academy”) is the pathway available through The Nevada Registry’s training approval system to help individuals interested in becoming approved trainers obtain the training delivery hours needed to initially qualify. Additionally, the ALA is designed to increase the number of publicly offered training sessions available to Early Childhood educators in Nevada. The ALA is not designed for individuals whose primary focus/intent is to deliver in-house training sessions to their own staff and priority will be given to applicants planning to deliver training to the broader ECE community.
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 Adult Learning Academy will be offered virtually via ZOOM. The cost to participate is $125 per person.
