sql select statement

I have this select statement.  I'm trying to restrict the returned te.Training_Date to be no later than 1/1/2011.  I"m not able to get this part (where te.Training_Date <= 1/1/2011 12:00:00)) of my syntax to work correctly.  The Training Date has smalldatetime datatype.
 
SQL = "Select Training_Events_ID, tc.Training_Area, te.Class_Title, te.Training_Date, te.Training_Hours from Training_Events te, Training_Category tc where te.Training_Date <= 1/1/2011 12:00:00) and te.Training_Category_ID = tc.Training_Category_ID and Staff_Training_ID = " & lv_Staff_Training_ID & " Order by te.Training_Date;"

Thanks for looking at this.

Try

SQL = "Select Training_Events_ID, tc.Training_Area, te.Class_Title, te.Training_Date, te.Training_Hours from Training_Events te, Training_Category tc where te.Training_Date <= '1-jan-2011' and te.Training_Category_ID = tc.Training_Category_ID and Staff_Training_ID = " & lv_Staff_Training_ID & " Order by te.Training_Date;"
