Professional Development Sponsor Organizations

Achieve assists Professional Development (PD) Sponsor Organizations with offering quality professional development and learning opportunities. PD Sponsor Organizations play an important role ensuring practitioners have access to quality trainings, workshops, conferences, and institutes.

Programs offering training to those working in the childhood care and education field are encouraged to become an approved PD Sponsor Organization.

Examples include:

  • Resource and referral agencies
  • Professional associations
  • Programs that provide training to their staff
  • Colleges and universities

Approved PD Sponsor Organizations can post approved training opportunities on Develop. These trainings will qualify as approved on attendees’  learning records.
