What is the Registry?
The Registry is the tracking component of the
Arkansas Early Childhood Professional Development System. The
Registry plays a key part in promoting professional development.
Early childhood professionals in the state are encouraged, and
sometimes required, to become members. Each member has access to an
online training transcript, which lists the training he or she has
attended over the year. Fifteen hours of training are required each
year to maintain membership. Members are assigned Registry
Identification numbers which can be used in place of social security
numbers at registered training events across the state. Each member
is assigned a level according to education and training he or she
has received. Members can move forward to reach professional career
goals and can use the TAPP Map to guide which training is
best suited to fit his or her needs.
The Registry web site includes training
opportunities for all registered training agencies across the state.
Online registration can be done quickly! Check for training
opportunities by location, date, or topic.
The Registry tracks trainers across the state and
verifies that they have experience training adults, working with
children, and education in their related field.
