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.

Achieve has two options for your organization’s conference approval available. These options are outlined here in the Conference Approval Guidelines.

Explore resources specific to PD Sponsor Organizations.

Achieve automatically approves Early Childhood and School-age related training from specific types of schools, agencies, organizations and publishers.  See who qualifies by reviewing this document.

PD Sponsor Organizations can view detailed instructions for the online course submission and approval process in the Interactive Course Approval Guide.
