2003 listing of training opportunities for Early Childhood professionals in Brevard County

The Training Department continues to coordinate Training Opportunities to include the mandatory classes and special training sessions you have requested as caregivers. The Training Program would like to provide you with a Creative Educational learning experience, so that you as child care professionals will continue to provide the developmentally appropriate skills needed in your profession. These skills are vital in helping each child continue the enjoyment of learning which is the key to a successful educational experience.

Director’s Credentials: Legislation was passed in Florida during the 1999 Legislative Session that will require Child Care and Education Program Directors/Administrators to have a credential as part of the minimum licensing standard by January 1, 2003.


GUIDELINES FOR TRAINING PARTICIPANTS
Training News - Training Courses - Course Registration

Pre–registration is required for all participants taking training sessions through the Child Care Association training program. If participant does not pre-register and shows up for a class, and the class has reached capacity, they will be advised that no seats are available and their names may be added to a waiting list.

If there are less than ten (10) participants pre-registered for a class, the instructor and current registrants must be notified that the class was cancelled. If the class has the required number of registrants, but on the first day of class less than (10) ten show up for the class, that class will continue as planned; however the instructor and the class will be told that the class is cancelled due to insufficient enrollment.

Class members may be given an option to recruit more students; however, they will be advised, that if the next class does not meet the required enrollment, class will be cancelled before the second class begins.

Registrants must be advised that if they show up more than 15 minutes late the first day of class, their seat may be given to a person on the waiting list. In addition, participants entering a session 15 (fifteen) minutes after the session has begun will not receive credit for that class.

If a Day Care facility or business calls and says that they have 10 or more people who need to be trained, Training Department may send an instructor to that site as long as it is understood that the class enrollment must be open to the public, and will be advertised by the Child Care Association of Brevard County Training Department.

If a Day Care facility or business would like to be a host facility for a training session, the requirement is to complete a Use of Facility Form obtained from the Training Department.

All participants must complete required documentation for attendance at training sessions (attendance sheets & course evaluation forms) to verify attendance at each session.

All participants must complete required documentation for attendance at training sessions; (attendance sheets & course evaluation forms) to verify attendance at each session.

Please note there is a $5.00 charge for the CPR card and a $5.00 charge for the First Aid card. Please do not forward any fee amount to the Child Care Association. Fees will be due the date of class. The maximum enrollment for CPR and First Aid Class is twelve (12). We will over enroll by 3 participants to allow for the participants who cancel or do not show up for the training session.

As a professional courtesy to the instructors, presenters and participants, please do not bring cellular phones and or pagers set for the audible mode into the training sessions.

In addition, we are requesting that no food or drinks be consumed inside the training facility.

State Mandated 3 Hour Family Child Care Module

he 3-Hour Fundamental Child Care Course is designed to give an overview of caring for children in a home care setting. Any person providing informal child care services for a family must take this course. It is also required for emergency substitutes for all family child care homes, registered or licensed.

The informal provider is someone who provides care for children from one family who is not registered or licensed but who is exempted from the requirements. The emergency substitute must have this course before beginning occasional substituting in the family child care home. If substituting exceeds 40 hours per month,

the 30-hour Family Child Care must be taken instead. See schedule below.

TRAINING UPDATE

 

This training update is to provide participants with a better understanding and give some guidelines to Participants who need to complete the Administrator’s Credential. The Training Department is making every effort to assist you with the required training that is needed to receive this credential.

Administrator Credential what is it? Legislation was passed in Florida during 1999 Legislative session that requires administrators/directors of early childhood and education programs to obtain a credential as part of the minimum child care licensing standards by January 1, 2003. After January 2003, directors will have to complete the credential requirements prior to being hired in a director position.

Who? Person required to obtain the credentials is the on-site person responsible for the overall operations of the child care facility whether or not he/she is the owner or administrator of the facility. This includes operators of school-age child care programs, Pre-kindergarten and Head Start if they fall under the child care licensing statute.

Why? The new credentialing requirement brings higher status and recognition for the center administrators as professionals. It also lends credibility to the profession of early childhood education.
