Welcome to TrainTN
Welcome to TrainTN, the official clearinghouse for early childhood trainings recognized as approved by the Tennessee Department of Human Services (TDHS).
TrainTN provides an application process for trainings to be recognized through an official review. Once approved, trainers may be recognized for a period of five (5) years.
If you have any questions about the application requirements and expectations, or would like to contact the TrainTN team directly, please click here.
TrainTN is a companion to the Tennessee Professional Archive of Learning (TNPAL) and is designed for training professionals who wish to offer trainings to child care agency staff in order to meet Tennessee Licensure Rules for Child Care Agencies (1240-04-01) as well as Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) training and professional development requirements.
Beginning November 1, 2021, the Tennessee Department of Human Services (TDHS) will only recognize external or non-agency-based training sources approved through TrainTN. All prior approvals granted to external training sources that are not TrainTN approved will expire later this fall and no longer be recognized by TDHS.
