Upcoming Trainings

Indiana Transition Trainings

Trainings provided by Indiana Secondary Transition Resource Center staff include regional trainings, held annually throughout the state, to update education professionals about opportunities or changes to transition policy or to assist them with constructing compliant, quality transition IEPs. We make announcements about upcoming regional trainings here on this page, in Tuesday's Transition Tips, and via email. 

At its annual Capacity Building Institute, usually held in April, INSTRC joins with the state Department of Education to welcome the state’s Cadres of Transition Leaders together for a day of education and networking opportunities.

You can find past INSTRC trainings and resources under the Archived Trainings and Materials tab, located on the left side of your screen.
