Comments on Many Ways to Learn for Toddlers and Preschoolers:

I just completed the course on the eight intelligences, "Many Ways to Learn", and even though I had received teaching on this before, I still found your course to be informative and I learned new information. I love the convenience of being able to complete my required hours of training hours by taking Care Courses and fitting them into my schedule. Thanks! - McGaheysville, Virginia

About a year ago I thought I had already taken my training, but found out during an inspection they were the wrong ones. I had 30 days to complete the training and while it was offered through the State, it were not available during the time period allotted.  I was told about Care Courses by my licenser and within two weeks I had completed what I needed with time to spare.  I called many times with questions and everyone was so helpful.  I will certainly use Care Courses again and will recommend you to everyone. I thank you so much. - Salt Lake City, Utah

Care Courses currently offers over 60 professional development courses and one non-credit training tutorial on the CDA process. All courses offer clock hours and an official online certificate of completion. The free CDA tutorial does not offer clock hours or a certificate.

Care Courses' course tuition entitles one person to receive the clock hours granted by a course upon successful completion.  Bundle pricing covers tuition for all the courses included in a bundle.

To receive the CEUs and Clock Hours for a course, you must adhere to and sign our honor code, 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 official Care Courses certificates of completion which are accessed in the My Courses area of your account.
