Register for PD

PD Reminder

Certain features of DHS’s new Rhode Island Start Early System (RISES) Workforce Registry are still under development.

At this time, only CELP PD will transfer to your RISES account.

External PD that is not offered through CELP will not yet transfer to RISES. However, you are still able to have external PD approved through the Training Verification or Professional Development Approval process on the CELP website: Get Your PD Approved – Center for Early Learning Professionals ( Once this new feature is available, you will be able to submit external PD through your CELP account for approval.

A feature to transfer your ProSolutions PD to your RISES account is also under development.

In order for any PD to transfer to your RISES account, you will need to first create a RISES account: Register | Rhode Island Start Early System (RISES) ( When you create an account, you will automatically receive a Workforce ID. Enter this Workforce ID into your CELP account and ProSolutions account to ensure that your PD transfers seamlessly to RISES once those features are available.

Remember to “Tune-In” to this newsletter so you are the first to find out when these new features are ready!

El desarrollo profesional externo que no se ofrece a través de CELP aún no se transferirá a RISES. Sin embargo, aún puede obtener la aprobación de DP externo a través del proceso de Verificación de capacitación o Aprobación de desarrollo profesional en el sitio web de CELP: Get Your PD Approved – Center for Early Learning Professionals ( Una vez que esta nueva función esté disponible, podrá enviar DP externo a través de su cuenta CELP para su aprobación.

También se está desarrollando una función para transferir su DP de ProSolutions a su cuenta en RISES.

Ingrese este ID de fuerza laboral en su cuenta CELP y cuenta ProSolutions para garantizar que su DP se transfiera sin problemas a RISES una vez que esas funciones estén disponibles.
