All courses on ChildCareTraining.org are similarly structured. Courses are comprised of individual modules which each include a self-grading quiz and required learning activity. Some activities require additional research or for the participant to implement a practice at their facility and report on the experience. Enroll in our free Sample Course to explore an actual course. We recommend that all coursework be done on a laptop or desktop computer as to avoid any technical issues pertaining to visual discrepancies, lack of content, and various other issues.
Participants have 60 days from the date of registration to complete coursework, have the class graded by the instructor within 3 business day, and resubmit any answers toward a passing grade allowing an additional 3 business days for resubmission grading. If you have to resubmit any material, it is required that you message the instructor so that they are aware. In order to avoid being dropped before passing the course, ChildCareTraining.org recommends you complete the class at a minimum of at least two weeks prior to the 60 day drop date.
