MAINE CREDENTIALS

About Maine Credentials

Maine has developed statewide credentialing options for practitioners who wish to focus their training, coursework, and professional experience on the delivery of care and education to a specific age group or population. Maine Roads to Quality Professional Development Network administers these Maine Credentials.

Currently, Maine offers the following Credentials:

Infant Toddler Credential I & II

Youth Development Credential

Director Credential

Inclusion Credential

Each Maine Credential requires the following components:

  • Documentation of specific training and/or education requirements.
  • Submission of evidence documenting understanding and mastery of the competencies defined in each Maine Credential.
  • Feedback or other documentation regarding the practitioner’s engagement with families.
  • An on-site visit consisting of an observation and/or interview.

MRTQ PDN convenes Review Teams quarterly – in January, April, July, and October – to review Maine Credential applications. For detailed information about the Maine Credentials, please click on a specific Credential above.
