Connecticut Parenting Educator Credential
The Connecticut Parenting Educator Credential, a collaboration between Charter Oak
State College and the Connecticut Parenting Education Network (CT-PEN), establishes consistent criteria for the knowledge, skills and experience required
for parenting educators including home visitors, trainers, facilitators and parenting
education coordinators. This credential is issued through Charter Oak State College
at five different levels. The Credential acknowledges that, as a professional in the
field, you have obtained the experience and competency in the core areas of knowledge
for parenting educators and that you adhere to the CT-PEN Parenting Educator's Code of Ethics (PDF). It is important to note that membership in CT-PEN is a prerequisite for application of the Credential.
The Connecticut Parenting Educator Credential is an approved program of the State
of CT Board of Regents for Higher Education.
Program Application Process
Applications for the Credential are accepted year-round. The application fee is valid
for one year from the date of payment. At any time during that one-year period, you
are free to submit materials that will qualify you for completion of your credentialing
requirement as they become available. Once you have met education, training and experience
requirements at one of the program's levels you are responsible only for the credentialing
fee. See Application for current fees.
