Approved Training Opportunities

Training Opportunities

An approved training opportunity is a specific learning program (e.g., course, seminar series, workshop, etc.), offered by a third party provider, designed to help individuals improve or enhance their professional knowledge, skills, and effectiveness. Training opportunities listed here are reviewed by our Content Advisory Board which looks closely at the content and quality of the experience and identifies which key competencies in a micro-credential area are addressed. Approved trainings are those we believe will help CEPs advance their understanding or improve their practice in one or more core competency areas.
