Please read carefully before making a Training Approval submission. Technical assistance is limited.
1. One submission only per course. We do not need additional submissions when approved courses are repeated within the time-frame of the approval (i.e. the term of your current ASAP-NYCB Trainer Registry Membership). Details of your Trainer Registry # and expiration are given in the Welcome Letter you received via email when you became a member, and reproduced on your individualized training approval badge, when issued.
2. Please complete all three sections of the form. Incomplete submissions will not be reviewed:
- a.) Attestations
- b.) Trainer Statements
- c.) Course Inventory - Please see Sample Course Inventory and for CRPA and CARC competencies (Appendix)
- i. Evaluation form completed by students post-training (per Attestations)
- ii. Cancelation policy (per Attestations)
- iii. Training vendor Course Inventory, if required (see instructions on Course Inventory page)
3. Please note on the Course Inventory if you are submitting a third-party for initial certification training. Course inventories for these trainings may already be approved and on file. If so, they do not need to be reproduced by you. If in doubt, check with your training vendor/supplier. Otherwise, please complete your own content-competence crosswalk using the form provided. Your submission will not be reviewed unless we have a Course Inventory page from you.
4. Check on the ASAP-NYCB Approved Training and Continuing Education webpages if other standard products have previously been approved. If so, please contact your training vendor for a copy and append it to your submission. Otherwise, please complete your own content-competence crosswalk using the form provided. Your submission will not be reviewed unless we have a Course Inventory page from you.
5. Please note on the Course Inventory if you are submitting a curriculum developed by a third-party - e.g. Friends of Recovery-New York; Our Wellness Collective. These vendors may have supplied Course Inventories for their standard programs, relieving you of the need to cross-walk their content with certification competencies. Please confirm with your preferred vendor(s) before completing your submission. Your submission will not be reviewed unless we have a Course Inventory page from you.
6. If you are submitting original curriculum, please complete the Course Inventory page in full. Please see the Appendix for a Sample Course Inventory and for inventories of CRPA and CARC competencies. Please confirm that your course delivers competencies of both certifications; it will not be reviewed otherwise. Your submission will not be reviewed unless we have a Course Inventory page from you.
7. For initial certifications, we require 100% competence presence. Please indicate whether you are delivering 46 hours foundational training in one or two curricula.
8. Although the training approval process is a Trainer Registry member benefit, please note that training approval is not automatic. We must receive a complete submission for each of your courses. ASAP-NYCB will advise you of the status of your submission once it has been reviewed.
9. When issued, your individualized training approval badge will include the date of approval expiration - i.e the conclusion of your present ASAP-NYCB Trainer Registry membership term (see details in the Welcome Letter sent via email when you became a member).
10. This training approval badge must be displayed on your training completion certificates to be accepted towards professional certification at ASAP-NYCB.
11. Once expired, all training approvals must be resubmitted, with any updates to your content or practice noted in the new submission.
