How long does it take to process an application for the Professional Development Ladder (PDL) or Oklahoma Director's Credential (ODC)?
We are currently processing PDL and ODC applications received 12/22/2021 (17 business days).
26% of applications received in December 2021 were Fast-Track.
What does Fast-Track mean? Your application can go through this process if all of your initial or renewal training hours are taken from OPDR Approved Training Sponsors. These organizations will enter your training onto your OPDR account. This allows for a fast-track process for your PDL and/or ODC application.
The Oklahoma Professional Development Registry (www.okregistry.org) is an online system that recognizes and documents professional development in the early care and education field. Through the Registry, you and your director can track your professional development. It can also assist you in creating and monitoring your individual professional development plan.
The OPDR also includes a statewide training calendar where you can search for professional development that meets your specific needs.
Go to the Oklahoma Professional Development Registry website (www.okregistry.org) to register for an account. Once you have completed the registration process, you will receive your Oklahoma Registry ID number and password through email. You will use this information to log into your Registry account. Your Registry ID number will not change, but you can change your password.
