Important Announcement Regarding Changes with EITP Online Trainings

The Early Intervention Training Program is making some changes with their system for delivering online training. Over the next 4-6 weeks we will be slowly transitioning our online events to a new learning management system called Moodle. If you are currently enrolled in an online training event that is sponsored by the Early Intervention Training Program then you will be required to finish the training you are currently taking prior to October 28, 2013.

As of October 28th, 2013 you will no longer have access to view or review any past or current online training events in the Adobe learning management system. You are responsible for maintaining your certificates for credentialing and re-credentialing so if you have not already printed your certificate of completion for all online training events you have completed we suggest you do that as soon as possible.

While transitions can sometimes be difficult we hope to offer online training participants a better online learning experience with the new learning management system. We will provide periodic updates regarding this transition over the next 4-6 weeks so we can keep our online learners as informed as possible. Please check our website news section often and be on the lookout for more information in the coming weeks.
