First, split practitioners into three groups based on the setting in which they work, family child care, center-based or license-exempt. Use the data element, Type of Setting, and assign a code (“1”) for practitioners working in settings that are indicated with a “Yes” for the category “Family Child Care”, another code (“2”) to practitioners at settings that are “Center-based (including a school setting)”, and a third code (“3”) for practitioners in “License-exempt” settings. For each of these groups, complete the calculation described below.
Sum the number of practitioners with a Training Completion Date in the last federal fiscal year. Training records should be linked such that each completion date is tied to additional information about that training like whether is was a training approved by the state. Limit the number of completion dates that are also indicated as a State Approved Training and total the number of trainings. Perform this calculation for each of the setting types.
