Each year, ECCLC surveys early care and education providers to determine training needs. This information, along with the observations of needs from ECCLC staff, child care licensing specialists, and our Professional Development Advisory Committee, is used to create a plan for community trainings. Most of our trainings offered apply towards licensing requirements.

You can find these trainings, and many more in the Training Catalog below or on ECCLC’s calendar of events. The calendar of events will always have the most up to date information about trainings and cancellations.

Expanding Quality for Infants and Toddlers (EQIT) is a 48-hour course designed to support individuals working with infants and toddlers. It is particularly appropriate for child care providers who are looking for an in-depth, hands-on course focused on work with infants and toddlers in group care. Successful completion of the EQIT 48-hour course of training meets the infant toddler training requirements specific to early childhood teachers, center directors, and the specialized family child care licenses. This session is HYBRID. Please register through your PDIS account.
