Provider Training

The Minnesota Department of Human Services requires that licensed providers receive a minimum of 16 hours of
trainings per year. To date, I have completed several hundred hours of training. I have obtained the Minnesota Infant
Toddler Credential. Below I have listed a few of the training topics. A complete portfolio of training records for each team
member is available during an interview. Apple Tree team members are provided many training opportunities and also
exceed the minimum of 16 hours per year.
