There are too many organizations overseeing approval of early learning professional development for us to keep track of, but we know our trainings are accepted as follows:

United States

Professional Development Approvals

Canada

Alberta | We have been informed that Alberta does not have a pre-approval process and that our certificates contain the required information to be accepted as in-service training.

British Columbia | Explorations Early Learning was told that in BC, “professional development is assessed on a case by case basis after the workshop has been completed, and the certificate has been received.” Our certificates contain all the information required for approval, and our sessions cover topics that are traditionally approved.


Australia

We have not yet had time to dig into approval requirements for in-service trainings in any Australian states. It’s on the to-do list.
