The Nevada Registry: Adult Learning Academy Participant Interest Survey and Application
In order to qualify as a trainer, individuals must present evidence of having delivered a minimum of 15 hours of training in the past (in addition to meeting all other criteria). Individuals who do not meet this criteria cannot proceed with the trainer qualification and application process, regardless of whether all other criteria has been met. The Adult Learning Academy (ALA or “the Academy”) is the pathway available through The Nevada Registry’s training approval system (TAS) to help individuals obtain the training delivery hours needed to initially qualify.
The Adult Learning Academy (ALA or “the Academy”) is an in-person classroom-style training session designed to help prepare individuals with less than 15 hours of previous training experience to qualify as an ECE trainer for the first time (this pathway is not available to individuals interested in qualifying as a Topic Trainer). The ALA is focused on adult learning and will provide prospective trainers with fundamental principles and foundational information to help support the delivery of high-quality training sessions. Space in the Academy is limited to eight participants. Please note that a minimum of four participants must be enrolled in order for the Adult Learning Academy to be offered. A wait list will be created should there not be enough registrations to conduct the Academy and/or the demand exceeds the supply. Cost to attend: $75 (Paid directly to the trainer upon enrollment). Registration fees are non-refundable.
1. Upon completion of 15 hours of training, individuals are eligible to apply for trainer qualification with The Nevada Registry.
2. Individuals will receive 15 Registry-approved training hours that can be applied toward annual training requirements for Child Care Licensing.
Graduates of the Adult Learning Academy are expected to apply to become an approved trainer with The Nevada Registry following completion of the academy. ALA graduates are expected to deliver a minimum of two of four required training sessions to the general ECE public before the end of the current calendar year.

ALA participation requirements are aligned with the Trainer Qualification and Approval Criteria for Early Childhood Trainers. An Associate’s degree in ECE with two years of direct experience in ECE will be the minimum qualification requirement beginning in 2020. For this reason, to be considered for participation in the Adult Learning Academy, you must currently possess a Level of 4.2, 5.2, 6.2 or 7.2 on the Nevada Early Care and Education Professional Career Ladder. Please indicate your current Career Ladder Level below.
To be considered for participation in the Adult Learning Academy, you must currently be an active member of The Nevada Registry. Provide your Registry ID # below.
The ALA is designed to increase the number of approved trainers in the state and ultimately increase the amount of Registry-approved training available to the Early Childhood Community in Nevada. Because each Academy will be limited to a total of eight participants, efforts will be made to ensure that individuals from a variety of programs are included. Multiple participants from the same location will only be considered when space is available. Please indicate your current place of employment below.
The Adult Learning Academy requires a commitment and an investment of time from both the Instructor and course attendees. It is a limited opportunity that should only be considered by individuals who are serious about becoming a long-term approved trainer with The Nevada Registry in order to deliver high-quality training to the ECE community at large. This is not a suitable option for individuals who are only interested in offering training on an occasional basis to in-house staff. In 300 words or less, please describe why you are interested in being an Adult Learning Academy trainee and eventually becoming an approved trainer with The Nevada Registry. In your description, please include what you hope to gain by participating in the Adult Learning Academy, what you believe influences the delivery of high-quality training as well as your tentative plans for training delivery once an approved trainer (i.e. frequency, to whom, in what topics, etc.).
