How to Know if Training is Approved

It’s important to be a careful consumer when it comes to training. In North Dakota, all training must be pre-approved to be accepted toward license renewal and professional development. Training listed on the Statewide Training Calendar is already approved. When you register for and complete an approved training, the clock hours will be added to your Training Record for you.

If you are wondering about a training that does not appear on the calendar, contact the sponsor and ask if the training has been issued a Growing Futures Event ID#. A unique Event ID# is assigned to all approved training. If a training has that number, you know it is approved and will be applied toward annual licensing clock hours. Training that has not been approved will not have a unique Growing Futures Event ID# and will not be added to your training record. Unapproved training sponsored by an organization in North Dakota cannot be added to your record after the fact.
