We are now accepting applications for the Short Course on the ITERS-3 to be March 26-28, 2018.  The Short Course provides training in use of the Infant / Toddler Environment Rating Scale – Third Edition (ITERS-3). Authors of this new 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.

Application procedure

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 February 23, 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 two weeks whether they have been accepted.


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 February 23rd. After February 23rd, no refunds will be given.

Accommodations and travel

The Raleigh-Durham Airport is 18 miles from Chapel Hill. Upon acceptance, applicants will be sent information about hotel, rental cars, taxis, airport limousines and shuttle service. The training will be held at the SpringHill Suites by Marriott Durham/Chapel Hill.  Rooms will be held at the hotel at a special rate of $107/night. 

Schedule and course credit

The Monday session will run approximately from 9 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and the following two days from 7:30a.m. to 4p.m.  Letters of completion will be given only for participation in the entire session, so please make travel plans accordingly.
