Mission: Reflecting Oklahoma's commitment to high quality early care and education by providing professional development that produces results!
I worked for the Center for Early Childhood Professional Development from 2013 to 2016; before the budget cut some of the programs that the CECPD housed. I was part of the ERS Program (Environmental Rating Scale). CECPD is part of the College for Continued Education at the University of Oklahoma, it's funding comes from the Oklahoma Department of Human Services Child Care Division. CECPD houses the states Registry where it tracks child care professionals training, education and job history. It also houses the Professional Development Approval System, this is where the trainers and training's get approved for the state. DHS Child Care Division funds the software and registry needed to house these different services for the early childhood professionals. All training's are put into the registry for the professional when they attend by the trainer of the course. Every year, depending on the Professional Development level you hold, you have to have 20 to 30 hours of training a year. We have a Professional Development Ladder and a Oklahoma Directors Credential. The CECPD have Registry Advisers that help with customer service and Program Specialist that help with customer service with the Trainers and for the training's offered.
