Curricula That Require Certification or Approval

Aspire verifies trainers' credentials to determine whether they are approved to deliver certain curricula.  These curricula are mostly standardized and require trainers to participate in a formal train-the-trainer process and acquire certification or approval through the curriculum developers.

The table below lists the curricula for which approval or certification is required.  If you are a trainer who holds approval in one of these curricula, you can indicate this on your Aspire Professional Profile. Aspire requires you to submit documentation in order to verify this approval (refer to the list below). 

Once verified, you will be able to create events for the curricula for which you hold approval on the Statewide Training Calendar.  This information will also appear on your profile on the New York Works for Children Trainer Search.  Additionally, verified information on your profile is shared with the SUNY Professional Development Program to help make determinations about Educational Incentive Program (EIP) reimbursement.
