Race to the Top Online Training

The staff from the CCR&R at WKU are excited to offer a variety of training sessions using this online forum.

Online venues allow individuals to sign up for training that not only meets their technology needs, but also allows them to do the work from their program or home without having to travel.

Because online training is not tightly scheduled, you can also complete the training at a time most convenient for you!

Each training segment will include multiple sources of information, activities, and an online discussion forum.

You may access and complete ANY of the posted modules at any time.

Participants have up to two weeks to complete their on-line participation and written assignments for each module and can earn two hours of training credit per module.

Once the module is successfully completed, training will be recorded in the ECE-TRIS databases within 10 business days.

Due to the requirements of the Information Technology administrators, registration may take up to 10 business days to receive log-in information.

All sessions are FREE.


IMPORTANT CONSIDERATIONS:

This is an “individual participation” event. Participants must register individually and must have a current, valid and active personal e-mail address to participate.

Groups of individuals cannot participate using a single e-mail address.

Delays in accessing the training may occur based upon the speed and reliability of their Internet access.

We recommend a high speed connection with Internet Explorer 7 or Firefox 3.0.15 and up-to-date Java and Windows software.

If you have already taken one of our training modules, then look through our extensive list to take a new session!

We at the WKU CCR&R are excited about the opportunity to offer providers a variety of training in an alternative format, designed to meet the needs of early care and education professionals.
