What benefits are there to being an approved trainer?

Approved core of knowledge (COK) trainers are able to develop and deliver training that is accepted for the Maryland Child Care Credential and continued/elective training to meet licensing regulations.  Child care professionals who access training opportunities from an approved trainer can be confident that the training content meets quality standards, is delivered following proper adult learning principles, and is correlated to meet Core of Knowledge content areas.  Trainers can obtain continued training to enhance their own professional development and meet the training requirement for renewal by attending Quarterly Trainers Meetings
