Revised "New FCC/FFN Orientation" schedule effective June 2019:
Tick-Tock...Tick-Tock... Getting those training hours before your renewal time expires!
Professional Development requirements as outlined in Chapter 54: Manual of Requirements for FCC Registration, 3A:54-5.7 Renewal of a Certificate of Registration:
(e) Prior to the renewal of a Certificate of Registration, the provider and alternate provider shall provide documentation of attendance at 20-hours of in-service training, other than first aid and CPR training, provided or approved by the sponsoring organization (Rutgers CCR&R Agency), during the last three-year registration period.
1. Distance learning training will be allowed up to a maximum of 10 hours of in-service training if the following criteria are met:
i. the training addresses a required topic and is accomplished through instruction and interaction between an instructor or the ability to contact the instructor by phone or e-mail to discuss training materials; and
ii. the provider maintains a record of the course curriculum and all documentation validating completion of the course (all trainers report registrant participation to the Workforce Registry at NJCCIS).
2. Credit bearing courses offered by an accredited college or university that address required topics will be accepted, as long as the provider documents that credit was earned and can provide accreditation of the college program (in other words, enrolling in your community college or an accredited on-line college/university can count toward your hours, as long as you complete the course before your application deadline and you have proof of a passing grade of C or better. Acceptable courses can include: Child Psychology; Sociology of the Family; any Exceptional Learner/Population course; Infant/Toddler coursework)
