The Council for Professional Recognition is pleased to announce that ProSolutions Training (PST) has renewed its sponsorship support for the 2019 Early Educators Leadership Conference (EELC).
EELC is an annual early childhood education conference hosted by the Council that attracts national and international professionals and leaders in the field. This year’s conference will be held Oct. 8–11 at the Atlanta Evergreen Marriott Conference Resort in Stone Mountain, Georgia. Keynote speakers include the executive director of Leading for Children, Judy Jablon; the president/CEO of United Way of Greater Atlanta, Milton J. Little, Jr.; and the CEO of the Council for Professional Recognition, Valora Washington, Ph.D., CAE.
“We are delighted to have ProSolutions Training return for the fifth consecutive year as a sponsor of the 2019 EELC this fall. Their participation and support will surely engage early childhood professionals who are seeking to gain more expertise in their careers through developmentally appropriate practices and educational training,” said Dr. Washington.
PST will be a Silver Sponsor for the 2019 EELC.
Based in Atlanta, Georgia, PST is a CDA Gold Standard℠ comprehensive training organization, which means they offer the 120-hour curriculum required to complete the formal education requirement for the Council’s Child Development Associate (CDA®) Credential. As the Council requires the CDA® to be renewed every three years, PST also offers the 45-hour curriculum that provides the coursework for the CDA®. The Council requires renewal training to be specific to the credential type. In July 2017, PST received the Council’s new CDA® Gold Standard℠ training certification in recognition of the quality of their online coursework, the support services provided for students and their comprehensive learning management system.
