Early Childhood Resource Center's Training Policies

  • Pre-registration is required for all classes.
  • Registration will be accepted after the deadline via telephone, if seats are available. Walk-ins are welcome if space is available and trainer approves. Payment must be received before credit will be given. 
  • For classes that have a fee, registration will be considered complete once payment is received.
  • Credit card payments will be accepted through the Ohio Professional Registry at the time of registration, or during call-in registration after the deadline. Cash and checks are also acceptable, but at our Canton office only. There will be a $25 charge for any NSF check submitted. 
  • Registration fees will be refunded if the student cancels before the deadline. No refund will be offered if the student either cancels after the deadline or registers but is absent from class. Subsitutions are welcome with a 24-hour notice, but refunds are unavailable. 
  • Classes may be cancelled due to low enrollment or weather conditions. Refunds will be issued in these instances. Class cancelations will come via email or the Ohio Professional Registry's notification system. Cancelations will also be posted on the homepage of our website. 
  • In the event of inclement weather, all individuals registered for an in-person class will receive a notification, which will be sent to the email address listed in the OCCRRA account used to register for the class. Whenever possible, this notification will be sent at least three hours before the training class is scheduled to begin. Participants will be contacted about a reschedule date. If questionable weather develops during the three-hour window before the class is scheduled to begin, feel free to contact the Early Childhood Resource Center to check for updates. Accommodations will be made to find replacement training for participants as needed. Trainers will communicate with their Regional Coordinator to make final decision on cancellation. If a class is cancelled, the trainer will call participants and email a cancellation notification.
  • No children are permitted in training classes at any time. This distracts the participants as well as the trainer and takes away from the learning experience for everyone. 
  • We no longer provide in-service forms. All credit will be awarded in the Ohio Professional Registry.

Please note that your OPIN number is required at the time of registration. To register, visit https://registry.occrra.org. Sign into your account and click the Find Training button on the right side. You can search by county, instructor, title, or training ID for the date range you are interested in. 

For virtual training sessions: First, register on the Ohio Professional Registry. Several days before the session, you will recieve an email with a registration link for Zoom. After completing the registration link, you will receive an email with login information for the class.
