NJ Workforce Registry
We have entered into a joint collaboration with NJWorkforce Registry to use the NJ Registry database to register for our workshops. This means if you would like to attend a CCCS workshop, you will need to have a Registry number.
What is the NJ Registry?
Anyone who works with children in a child care center, a family child care setting, after‐school program or in a public school system is required to complete professional development training hours. The NJ Registry is an on‐line database which helps early childhood professionals manage and track their professional development hours. It also recognizes a person’s education, training and work experience in the field of early childhood education. Active members can print their membership card, Certificate of Recognition and an Education and Training Report, which is a summary of any degrees, certifications, college experience and credentials they have, as well as trainings they have attended.
For more information, visit the Workforce Registry online or call 1-877-522-1050
How to Create an Account on NJCCIS
What is a registry number?
Once you register, you will be assigned a number. That number will be used to document your workshop attendance.
