South Carolina Center for Child Care Career Development


Registered vs. Certified Training

Two ways to register your training:

  1. Registered Training
    All persons desiring to present training for SCDSS required annual training hours, must register with CCCCD before conducting training.  The form Request for Child Care Training Registration along with the Outline Format must be submitted to CCCCD at least 10 days prior to training.  The Registered Training Outline Guidelines and DSS Topic Areas will help in completing the required form and outline.

    After receiving the registration form and outline, CCCCD will send the trainer an official attendance roster with the title, subject area and course number for the training outline submitted.  The trainer must make copies of this roster to use each time the training session is presented.  This official attendance roster must be signed by each participant at the training session. Participants are not eligible to receive credit for the same session more than one time.  The trainer verifies those signatures by signing and dating the roster and then returns the completed roster to CCCCD.  The participants’ names are then entered into the South Carolina Child Care Training Registry.

  2. Certified Training
    There is also a voluntary certification process available for qualified trainers.  Individuals who have earned a four-year degree with course work in early childhood content areas, have professional experience in early childhood programs/content areas, and coursework in teaching adults, can apply to become a South Carolina Certified Child Care Trainer. Certified trainers are also required to submit training content outlines for each training scheduled.  These outlines go through an objective scoring process to ensure they represent current best practices in early childhood education and in principles of adult education. Once the outline is submitted and scored, the trainer will receive an official DSS attendance roster for participants to sign at the time of the training.

* Both registered training and certified training provide participants with the same DSS training credit as long as the information has been submitted to CCCCD at least 10 days prior to the training and the trainer receives the official DSS attendance roster for all participants to sign at the time of the training.
