Hello providers. This is a quick video that debunks a few common myths the early childhood workforce here in Oregon has regarding advancing your Oregon Registry Steps.
Watch the Video HERE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W6nwiwzIc7w&feature=youtu.be
Myth #1: You can only raise your Oregon Registry Steps by taking Set 2 or Set 3 classes. Not true.
Myth #2: You can only get to steps 7.5-10 by taking Set 3 classes (or Set 2 and Set 3 classes) so Set 1 classes are a waste of time once I reach Step 7. Not true.
Myth #3: When you add up the hours for each CKC you can't use Step 1 courses. Not true.
Myth #4: Let's separate the total hours calculation and the individual CKC hours calculations from the requirement that a certain minimum number of hours need to be Set 2 or Set 3. These calculations aren't connected (the first 2 listed aren't directly correlated/connected to the minimum hours calculation for Set 2 or Set 3).
Myth #5: I should take Set 2 and Set 3 classes in all CKCs OR I need Set 2 and Set 3 classes in every CKC. Not true.
