State Training Approval
- Our courses may, or may not, meet annual training requirements in your state. Click here for state approval information. Provide us with your state, and any State registry ID number, and if we are able to record your completed training with your state, we will. In some cases, for annual state credit, you will need to submit the certificate to the appropriate registry and they may or may not award annual credit. Providing a State Registry number to us does not guarantee that your state will approve the training for annual continuing education credit. Many states have QRIS systems that require specific courses to be completed for annual or in-service training. Do not enroll in this course for the purpose of completing a state specific mandated course without first verifying exactly what course requirements need to be met.
- We make every effort to record completed training in state registries within 3 days of when a certificate is issued. However, in some cases, it may be up to 7 days.
