"I am very happy with my Care Course experience. I just had a baby a month ago and was approaching my deadline to get my pdp's. Care Courses was a convenient way for me to catch up while being home with my new baby. I will certainly be using your services again." - Natick, Massachusetts
“Your classes [Cultural Diversity in Early Childhood Programs,
Family Diversity, and Children with Special Needs: Autism Spectrum Disorder] are awesome! I received the courses (book) very quickly and
completed one right away and started another. Your service is such a
wonderful way to get the continuing ed courses I need and get new
information instead of the same old stuff that "workshops and seminars"
offer. Thank you for the opportunities you afford to preschool
teachers.” – Cockeysville, Maryland

To receive the CEUs and Clock Hours for a course, you must follow directions on written assignments and show comprehension of the course content. You must make 70% or better on all course quizzes. Less than 70% will result in trainer review and evaluation. If review indicates the need for discussion, you will be informed that you must speak with a trainer. You will be given a second chance to make 70% or better. Should you fail to do so, you will receive a letter indicating that you did not pass the course and may not retake the course for 12 months.
Clock hours and CEUs are documented on original Care Courses certificates of completion mailed through the US Post Office. All course formats receive an original mailed certificate. Once you have completed a course and submitted your answers to us you can expect to receive your certificate within 10 business days (depending on the grading & certificate option you choose).
