Follow the steps below to login to the Texas Early Childhood Professional Development System’s Texas Workforce Registry. Available at no cost for all Texas early childhood practitioners and administrators, TECPDS accounts offer an online career profile for early childhood professionals to track their work experience, professional development, and education/credentials. The website also provides resources to support further career advancement.
If you already have an account on CLI Engage, we recommend that you use the same Google account information to login to TECPDS. Your professional development certificates earned on CLI Engage will be automatically transferred to your personal TECPDS account if you use the same Google account information.
Go to tecpds.org and select “Texas Workforce Registry” in the navigation. Or, go directly here: Texas Workforce Registry
Watch the short orientation video for the Texas Workforce Registry. You can also download a PDF of the orientation video script.
After watching the video, look for the TECPDS account set-up. Click the button to create your TECPDS account.
On the next screen, enter your Google account information and click “Next.” If you already have an account on CLI Engage, be sure to enter the same Google account information to create your TECPDS account.
Complete the required information on the registration screen. Required fields are marked with a red asterisk.
When complete, select “SUBMIT FOR FREE ACCOUNT” to complete the registration process.
Now your TECPDS account is created! You will be taken to your personal dashboard. From this screen, you can add your work experience, professional development, and education/credentials to complete your career profile.
