NYSRPS is very pleased to share incredible opportunities this fall for professional development and certification. While programs have switched to a virtual format, they will be no less comprehensive and presented by the recreation industry's top professionals. We thank you for participating and look forward to serving your professional development needs during this different kind of year.
The NRPA National Playground Safety Inspector course is the most comprehensive training program on playground hazard identification and risk management methods offered. Advanced reading and 15 hours of training will prepare you to sit for the Certified Playground Safety Inspector exam given at the end of the course. This course is led by NRPA provided instructors and it is a national certification, not state specific.
See CPSI COURSE information for our 2020 blended program.
The Downstate Conference hosted by New York's Affiliate Partners WRAPS, HVLSA, METRO, NYSTRA and NYSRPS is celebrated annually to give park, recreation and therapeutic professionals a chance to gather for professional development, networking and camaraderie. Sessions offer a chance to earn Continuing Education Credits (CEUs) for park and recreation recertifications of CPRP / CPRE as well as CTRS for therapeutic professionals.
Webinars are a
wonderful way to develop professionally from the comfort of your home
and earn credit towards certifications. NYSRPS has specifically
identified three partners for delivering vital information via webinars.
While COVID-19 forced the cancellation of our annual conference and
live learning opportunities, it surely opened the door to this virtual
system for engagement and continuing educational opportunities. See the latest webinar offerings.
