Can parents participate?

Yes. Parents are invited to enroll and attend training sessions! Please help us to get the word out to parents about the opportunity to participate in these training sessions. Confidentiality provisions make it difficult for us to reach parents directly and we rely on service coordinators, providers and counties to provide this information to parents. You can assist us by passing the enrollment information along to families, or by making them aware of our phone number, e-mail and/or website address.

Training Options



What are my options for training?

The NYS EIP Online PD Center offers “self-paced” online courses at no cost to learners. Self-paced courses allow learners to proceed through a series of sequential modules that consist of video instruction, sample documents, learning activities, and checks for understanding (tests). Upon successful completion of all sections in a course, learners are immediately awarded a Certificate of Completion within the platform.


The NYS EIP Online PD Center uses TalentLMS to provide its online, self-paced courses. Once a learner creates an account for the online learning platform, they have access to all available courses.

How to Enroll

How do I enroll?

Go to, where you can either Sign Up (create an account) if you haven’t already done so or Log In (if you have already signed up/created an account for the portal).

Review this User Guide for detailed instructions on how to enroll in and complete our courses.

How to Resume Learning

If I log out of a course before completing it, how do I continue working on the course at a later time? 

You can exit out of the self-paced course at any time and your progress will automatically be saved. 

Talent LMS Technical Requirements

TalentLMS is compatible with all modern browsers including Firefox, Edge, Chrome, Safari, and Opera.  It is also compatible with all browsers used by the latest mobile devices (i.e., iOS and Android).

When TalentLMS detects an older browser, the user is automatically prompted to update their browser to experience the platform in the best way possible.

To use the TalentLMS app you need an Android or iOS device.  If you have one, the recommended devices for installing and running the TalentLMS app without complications are:


All devices that run iOS 9 +. Those are:

  • All mobile devices from iPhone 4s +

  • All iPads from iPad 2 +

  • All iPad mini devices

  • All iPod touch devices of the 5th generation and higher



All devices that run Android 5 +.  The TalentLMS app can be installed but doesn’t run properly on Android 4.2+ devices.  

Certificate of Completion

How do I obtain a Certificate of Completion for a Course?

In order to obtain a Certificate of Completion you must do the following:

  • In order to obtain a Certificate of Completion you must successfully complete the entire course.

  • Certificates of Completion will be automatically awarded within the online learning platform upon completion of a course, and available to download.

  • You must keep a copy of the Certificate of Completion in your files and, if you are an employee/contractor to an agency, you must also provide a copy of the certificate to your employer.

  • Participants who have successfully completed a course may log back into a course to review the material/resources; however, NYSEIPOPDC will not issue a second course completion certificate if the participant chooses to take the course over for a second time in its entirety.  Additionally, the course will only be counted once towards the required professional development hours, as outlined in the New York State Department of Health Bureau of Early Intervention Provider Agreement.
