How do I get my training recognized as meeting one or more Parent Aware indicator?

To have a training recognized as meeting one or more Parent Aware indicator, eligible trainers and training organizations can participate in the Parent Aware Training Approval process through the Minnesota Center for Professional Development (MNCPD). Some trainings may already qualify. For more information about the Parent Aware Training Approval process, visit the MNCPD website at www.mncpd.org.
