NRS Online Training

NRS Online is the training site for the National Reporting System for adult education (NRS). This site contains training courses designed for adult education program administrators that explain NRS requirements and courses designed to improve the quality of NRS data collection. You can also use this site as a reference source for the NRS. Courses include NRS Basic Information, Data Quality Courses, and Data Use Courses.

As you proceed through an NRS Course you will encounter content along with a related question. By successfully answering a sequence of questions you will proceed to the end of the course. If your answer to a question is determined to be correct, you will automatically be forwarded to the next question or course page and a note will appear informing you as such. If your answer to a question is determined to be incorrect, you will be forwarded to a page that informs you that your answer was incorrect and gives you a short piece to read that conveys the answer. In order to advance to the next question you will need to correctly answer the current question. Your answers to the questions are stored in the database so that you can return to a course and review your work.

To gain full credit for a course, you will need to complete all questions, print a copy of the course completion page, and forward it to the WNYPDC to receive a Completion Certificate.

AEPro and ELL-U offer high quality, research-based online trainings. You are welcome to participate in as many of those workshops as interest you.  The West RAEN will credit each person staff development hours for one online course each academic year, plus one online course offered through the ACCES/West RAEN, in addition to the in-person, RAEN-sponsored staff development you participate in.  Before you begin any online course, email us with the title of the workshop you have chosen and the date you plan to begin the course.  When you finish the course forward your completion certificate to us so we can add the hours to our database.  ACCES/West RAEN reserves the right to determine how many hours of professional development credit are earned for an online training.
