Resources for License Exempt Providers
Level 2 Training Requirements
IMPORTANT: New information regarding level 2 training for License Exempt-Related and License Exempt-Unrelated subsidy providers. Beginning January 1, 2022, all Level 2 training must be taken through MiRegistry. Certificates for trainings completed outside of MiRegistry dated on or after January 1, 2022, will not count toward the 10 hours of training needed to meet the Level 2 requirement. You may find approved Level 2 trainings at MiRegistry Statewide Training Calendar.
General Level 2 Information:
License Exempt Related and License Exempt-Unrelated subsidy providers have the option to complete 10 hours of approved training per year to receive a higher hourly rate.
