Iowa AEYC Training Approval Policy
As an affiliate of NAEYC, Iowa AEYC has a history of supporting evidence-based, developmentally appropriate practices through our efforts, both in professional development offerings and in our communications and advocacy work. Iowa AEYC is an approved training organization in Iowa legislation and per the Iowa Department of Human Services, which require state-wide policies to offer training.
In 2009, our state Governing Board approved policies for chapters to use trainers and policies for awarding training certificates. Any conference, workshop, training, or chapter meeting providing an Iowa AEYC training certificate must follow policy. This policy includes Iowa AEYC chapter co-sponsored professional development with another organization if Iowa AEYC provides the certificate or is listed on the certificate as co-sponsor.
