The Texas Trainer Registry (TTR) lists approved early childhood trainers and their trainings. In order for these trainers to be listed on the TTR, they must apply and meet certain eligibility criteria based on their education, training, and experience. Each training proposal submitted is also reviewed and approved based on the relevancy of the content, benefits to a target audience, and the inclusion of adult learning practices and proper training methodologies.

We highly encourage ITSN specialists to spread awareness of the benefits of Workforce Registry accounts and to support early childhood professionals in joining the registry.
