The LINCS Professional Development (PD) Center is offering a Summer Training Series in late July and the first two weeks of August for state and local trainers. The virtual training consists of remotely accessible one-hour webinars, hosted by LINCS training developers. Each training will focus on the delivery of a LINCS training that can help states meet PD requirements under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). Each webinar will include an overview of the training, unique preparation requirements, and training tips for state and local trainers to use during teacher training in their states and local programs. Webinar participants will learn how to deliver these trainings. States can share this announcement with local programs or recruit potential trainers individually. Register for each session below.
