Last January we implemented a new system called Training and Technical Assistance Module - TTAM for short. After collecting information about everyone who registers for training sessions at the Council, we will be able to do several things - generate an individual's training records, prepare reports about attendance and evaluations, and also collect more information about the trainers and presenters for our Quality Assurance application.
The change you and your staff/employees will notice is that you will be asked to complete a 'registration' form at the first training session you attend in the new year. Once the basic information is in TTAM it should be more efficient to keep track of each person's training. For instance if you change to another child care job you won't have to repeat the registration, unless you also change your name or address. Your record is always your record; it won't be connected with your current employer.
Early registration is suggested for all workshops. We will not be able to consider you registered until we receive a REGISTRATION FORM and payment. Total payment must be made by the early registration date of the first workshop you want to attend. We cannot refund registration fees or exchange workshops. You may transfer the workshop to another provider if you cannot attend. We hope this helps with your planning and avoids any last minute cancellations of workshops due to low attendance.
If there is a training that you are interested in and you do not see it listed below, feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 607-273-0259.
If a workshop is cancelled due to bad weather or low registration, we will make every effort to contact those who preregister and give you credit. Check your e-mail regularly. The new system is set up to notify you via e-mail if a training is cancelled. In addition, we will attempt to contact you by phone.
Emergency Contact phone number during trainings is 607-273-6590 ext. 237.
