We are now accepting applications for the Short Course on the ECERS-3 to be held August 20-22, 2018. The Short Course provides training in use of the Early Childhood Environment Rating Scale - Revised Edition (ECERS-3). Authors of this widely used instrument serve as faculty for the training. Participants will be taught to use the scale and given guided practice conducting assessments in child care settings. Comprehensive debriefing will follow each practice assessment, led by experienced group leaders, with the authors on hand to answer questions. There is also an option to stay August 23rd and 24th to become reliable in the ECERS-3 scale.
Applications must be accompanied by a check or approved purchase order. We cannot guarantee spots without a purchase order or check for the training. Purchase orders must be replaced with checks by July 20th, 2018. Interest typically exceeds our capacity - we are often completely booked two weeks after opening registration - so apply early for the best chance of enrollment. Applicants will be notified within a few days that their application was received. We cannot formally accept you till a month before the training. Submitting an application is not an automatic acceptance.
A fee of $1650 covers the cost of the training, all materials, and breakfast and lunch for the first day of training. The fee does not include breakfast, lunch and dinners for Tuesday and Wednesday or overnight accommodations. Refunds will be given, minus a $50 processing charge, if cancellation is made by July 20th. After July 20th, no refunds will be given. If you are staying for the extra two days of reliability, it will be an additional $750 per day.
