The traditional Trainer associated with TECPDS, Registered Trainers are approved to deliver professional development to child care professionals in Texas. Participation in the Texas Trainer Registry is not required to provide training in Texas, but Registered Trainers meet the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) – Child Care Licensing requirements to provide training to a person who works in the child care industry (see Minimum Standards for additional information).
Registered Trainers are listed on the Texas Trainer Registry for 3 years following the application process, with an opportunity to renew. The educational qualifications vary depending on the Core Competency Area in which the trainer wishes to become approved, however all trainers must possess at least 3 years of experience working with young children or in their area of training, and must have completed a course or 15 hours of training in adult learning.
