The Department of Early Learning (DEL) is excited to announce that trainers and training organizations are now able to use the new Managed Education and Registry Information Tool (MERIT).
MERIT replaces the State Training and Registry System (STARS) database as the place to house information on STARS-approved training, training organizations and early learning professionals. DEL took the STARS database offline on April 1 to create a stronger, more user-friendly tool.
- Add present and future training offers to MERIT; and
- Create, modify and delete trainings from MERIT
Early learning professionals, including child care providers, will get access to MERIT at a later date to record training history and search available trainings. Child care providers must still follow licensing rules and take required STARS-approved trainings.
