The Training Department continues to coordinate training classes for Child Care professionals on a quarterly basis.

During the month of May, additional training sessions were added to meet your training needs and to give you more opportunities to receive your annual training hours.

Many Child Care providers took advantage of these sessions last month and we encourage more participation from centers.

As a Training Coordinator, my goal is to continue to provide you with ongoing courses that will enhance your professional skills and equip you with the tools that will enable you to provide the best quality care and educational experiences for children.

If you have any questions or comments regarding the Training Program please direct all inquiries to Beverly Smith/Training Coordinator, at 407-637-7769.

Please continue to review the training guidelines that are listed on the back of the training schedule for all participants.

GUIDELINE FOR TRAINING PARTICPANTS

  1. Pre–registration is required for all participants taking training sessions through the Child Care Association training program. If participant does not pre-register and show 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

     

  4. Registrants must be advised that if they show up more that 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.

  5. If a Day Care facility or business call and say that they have 10 or more people there that need to be trained, the 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.

  6. 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 from the Training Department.

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

  8. The State of Florida requires at least one person on site at all times to have a current CPR/First Aid Certificate. 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.

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

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