Growing Futures Training Record
The Growing Futures Registry maintains a permanent record of training you have completed since 2012 (some training completed between 2008–2012 is also included). All Growing Futures account holders (Basic and Membership) can view their training history at any time. Log in to your account and select “Training”. Your full training history will appear. If you have submitted an official transcript, any Early Childhood for-credit courses you’ve completed will also be included on your training history.
When you attend a Growing Futures approved training event, the organization that sponsored the training is responsible to add the training and clock hours to your Growing Futures training record. They are required to do so within two (2) weeks of the training completion date. If you completed a Growing Futures approved training and it is not appearing on your training record, contact the organization that sponsored the training immediately for help. To be sure you get credit for attendance at a face-to-face training, always complete the attendance sheet at the event, and provide all required information including your individual Registry ID#. To get credit for an online course, be sure to complete and submit all course requirements. NOTE: Growing Futures Registry staff cannot award you credit for attendance at a course. Only the organization that sponsored the training can do that.
Remember that the training history on your Training tab is simply a list of the training you’ve attended, and it may include training you have self-reported. This means that some training on the list may not be verified or approved. For this reason, most Early Childhood Licensing Specialists will not accept a printout of your training history as proof that you have met the annual training requirement for licensing. Instead, Early Childhood Licensing Specialists will request a copy of your official DHS Licensing Training Record, which shows only approved training that you have successfully completed in the previous 36-months, and that has been verified by the Growing Futures Registry. A link to the DHS Licensing Training Record is found by scrolling to the bottom of the Summary tab of all Registry individual accounts. Growing Futures Registry staff will not print paper copies of the DHS Licensing Training Record for any account holder.
Current Growing Futures members also have access to view and print their full Learning Record, which includes all approved training you have completed since the Registry began maintaining permanent training records in 2012. This report can be printed from the Reports tab of your account. Again, only current members have access to this full report. Growing Futures Registry staff will not print paper copies for members.
