PITC Trainer Institutes Application

Toddler at railing

PITC Trainer Institutes are offered to educators, program managers, and other professionals responsible for training infant/toddler care teachers. Trainer Institutes are conducted several times per year, alternating between Northern and Southern California, and East Coast locations. Once participants have completed the certification requirements, they will receive a certificate of completion from WestEd and the California Department of Education. Upon completion of all four modules, a participant becomes a PITC Certified Graduate. Fellowships are available to California residents who meet eligibility requirements. Learn more about PITC.
