Training Coach Touchpoints are periodically placed within the online FET content. These are opportunities to reach out to your Training Coach to build your relationship with them, and find out how your Training Coach can be a resource for you as a Trainer. Training Coach Touchpoints must be completed in order to progress through FET and your Training Coach may request some follow up information. Touchpoints can be done via e-mail, phone, or in person contact. Please respond to any follow up requests in order to progress through FET in a timely manner.
Now that you have a better understanding of the process for completing your Trainer’s Credential application and the qualifications for each Level, reach out to your Regional Training Coach to discuss your next steps in pursuing your credential!
To determine who your Training Coach is, look at the Regional Map in the course or online (www.kentuckypartnership.org/about/map) and identify the Training Coach based on the county where you reside. If you are Out of State, then you would contact the Training Coach closest to you.
Prior to reaching out to your Training Coach review the Trainer’s Credential Grid on page 6 of your handout and determine what Level you would like to apply for.
Reach out to your Training Coach via email, phone or an in person appointment. Share a little information about yourself, why you are interested in getting a Trainer’s Credential, and what Level you are planning to apply for. The levels are based on years experience in the field and educational background. If you are not exactly sure what level to apply for, your Training Coach will be able to provide some guidance.
Go ahead and start gathering the required documentation for your application and share what you have ready with your Coach. This would include your current resume, unofficial transcripts from college, and verification of the required training on your ECE-TRIS record. If you have not worked on any of those items yet that is perfectly OK. It is just helpful for your Training Coach to know exactly where you are in the process so they can support you in your next steps.
