Ways to support your goals using the Registry:
1. Make sure your profile is up to date!
Ensuring that your most recent employment information and education are verified in the registry (including your high school diploma or GED!) is more important than you may know! This helps determine if you are eligible and notified when different opportunities become available, like college scholarships, that will help you reach the next milestone of your education goals!
2. Track your professional goals in your Registry profile.
Did you know that you can set and keep track of your goals on your registry profile? By clicking “My Goals” under “My Tools & Settings,” you can add and describe your goals and revisit them regularly to add progress updates. When you complete your goal, you’ll be able to use this list as a reminder and documentation of all the progress you have made. The great news is you can have more than one active goal at a time, so you can keep track of all your PD goals in individual entries! If you need help updating any of this information, you can view these helpful how-to videos, or email Info@TheArizonaRegistry.org
3. Find and attend trainings that will help you meet your goals.
- If your goal focuses on a specific topic, you can search for specific training in the registry that will support your knowledge in this area. When you sign up through the Registry, these trainings will be added to your PD & Education report when you complete the requirements.
- If you attend professional development that you found outside of the Registry and receive a certificate of completion, you can still add it to your training log! Watch this video to see how easy the process of adding your training is!
- Visit the Events page on our website to keep up to date with other opportunities that may not be listed as training in the Registry.
4. Use professional development opportunities to network with others.
It’s always more fun to work on goals with others! Encourage your colleagues to update their Registry profiles or attend a training with you. When you go to a training event, take time to network and get to know other attendees. Having a support network of peers in your community can give you fresh ideas and help reduce burnout.
