New Jersey Instructor Approval System

The New Jersey Instructor Approval System is a voluntary system in which instructors in Early Childhood Education, Afterschool, or related fields are approved by Professional Impact NJ. Instructors/trainers are professionals who bring a wide array of experience and skill to the training room. Depending on their educational level and work experience, trainers are approved at one of four levels-Mentor, Associate Instructor, Instructor or Master Instructor. This system allows approved instructors to list and rate the courses they teach in the Directory of Instructional Resources, an online database of trainings. The approval criteria are linked to the standards, core knowledge areas and competency levels established in PINJ's Core Knowledge and Competency Areas for Professional Standards for Adults Working with Young Children Birth through Age Eight and in Afterschool Programs document. To find an instructor or sponsoring agency offering trainings logon to the Online Instructor Approval System Database or contact us directly.

The New Jersey Instructor Approval System reviews and approves qualified instructors or trainers to deliver professional development training. These instructors fall into one of four levels based upon their NJ Registry level, educational level and work experience, and criteria related to standards established in the Core Knowledge and Competency Areas for Professional Standards for Adults Working with Young Children Birth through Age Eight and in Afterschool Programs document .
