Any newly hired personnel who need to obtain their initial S.C. Part C Credential will have 90 days to complete BabyNet Basics.  See SC Part C Credential New Hire webpage for more information.

TECS SPONSORED TRAININGS AND UPDATED BABYNET BASICS
In order to complete some of the TECS Sponsored trainings and Updated BabyNet Basics requirement, personnel will need to log into TECSBOOK 2.0. There are 3 sections within TECSBOOK: BabyNet Basics, BabyNet Advanced and BabyNet Electives.

BabyNet Advanced section will contain topic-specific trainings (usually developed or adapted by TECS). These are TECS Sponsored trainings.  For TECS Sponsored face-to-face trainings, attendees need to sign the attendance roster. We will use the attendance roster to add this training credit to your TECSBOOK account. If you attended but didn’t receive credit, please contact us through the Helpdesk.

PRE-APPROVED OUTSIDE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT ACTIVITIES

Renewal credit hours can also be earned by completing outside professional development activities. However, these activities must receive pre-approval from TECS to count toward renewal credit hours. In order to obtain pre-approval, personnel need to submit a request (ticket) to the TECS Helpdesk online.  In the request description, personnel need to include a Web link to the professional development activity of interest and explain how it relates to the core competencies.
The five core competencies are: 1) Early Intervention Foundations, 2) Child Development and Learning, 3) Family and Community Relationships and Supports, 4) Evaluation and Assessment and Service Coordination, and 5) Delivery and Implementation.

After attending the pre-approved training event, BabyNet personnel will need to log into TECSBOOK 2.0 and click on BabyNet Electives.  There will be an evaluation listed in this section that needs to be completed for each training event attended.  Once it has been submitted, please contact the TECS Helpdesk to inform us that it has been completed and we will award the renewal credit hours for the event.

BABYNET STATE OFFICE TRAININGS
There will be mandatory policy trainings required by BabyNet State Office that will be separate from the BabyNet Credential.

*For additional information on the BabyNet requirement for a SC Part C Credential for all personnel, please refer to policy, regulatory, or contract requirements.
