    • If you are a provider in Missouri who is required to meet the annual 12 clock-hour training requirement, you are required to obtain a Missouri Professional Development Identification Number (MOPD ID) from The OPEN Initiative in order to track your professional development training hours. Training sessions that meet the requirement are approved by the State of Missouri's Department of Health and Senior Services, Section for Child Care Regulation.
    • Upon instructor review and successful completion of a class, we will send you a certificate reflecting the class title, student name, hours of training, Core Competency Area, and date of completion.
    • So you can be given credit in the OPEN Registry, you will have to provide an MOPD ID. If we do not have this, we can't send your class in for credit.
    • We submit records to OPEN at the end of each month. If you get your certificate and have provided your ID prior to the last Friday of a month, your record will be sent in for this month. If not, it will be included in the following month's record.
