Reinstatement for Unmet 2021 RC Trainer Requirements 

This is for RC Associate Trainers that have not met credentialing requirements in the 2021 training year. If this applies to you, your RC Trainer credential is on probation. To reinstate your credential you must complete the reinstatement process.


To complete the credentialing reinstatement process, you will need to do the following:

1. Register for reinstatement  and pay a fee of $150.

 2. Watch two RC recorded webinars and pass the accompanying test for each webinar.

 3. Complete by the March 31st deadline.

Register Now!

This reinstatement process is NOT intended as a replacement for attending RC training events during the year. It is meant only for the RARE occasion when trainers do not meet the annual requirement.


If you do not complete the reinstatement process, your RC Associate Trainer credential will be revoked. A letter will be sent to you and the Executive Director of your agency. If your credential is revoked, you are not permitted to do RC training within your agency. In order to become credentialed again, you will need to take the full RC Train-the-Trainer course.


The deadline for completing this process is March 31st (of the year following the year for which you are being reinstated). For example, if you failed to meet requirements in 2019, you must complete the reinstatement process by March 31, 2020. 


If you are not certain whether you have attended the necessary RC trainer events, check the RC Trainers’ Corner. Login information is on the first page of your RC Manual. If you still have questions, contact us at tsisupport@klingberg.com.


  1. After you register, you will receive an email immediately. It has a link and password to access a page on the TSI website.
  2. A choice of webinar videos and test links are listed on that page. Watch the 2 videos of your choice and complete the tests for those videos. You have 2 chances to pass each test. 
  3. Your test results are sent directly to us. Once you have passed the tests for 2 webinars, we will contact you confirming your reinstatement as an RC Associate Trainer.


You are still responsible for attending 2 training events in the current calendar year; Reinstatement videos satisfy only your 2021 attendance requirement.
