Shawn"I am having a ball doing these courses. So much of it is very interesting and also touches a lot on what I learned in college. I decided to go into child care and my director recommended me to take the CDA course. I think it is great."

Care Courses Certificates of Completion  

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 to successfully complete the course and receive a certificate. 
A link to your official certificate will be located to the right of successfully passed courses in the My Courses area of your online Care Courses account. Select the “View Certificate” link next to a successfully completed course to download, view, email and/or print your certificate.
If you fail a lesson (less than 70%) you must redo the work and resubmit for grading. Scoring less than 70% on any lesson or quiz 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 before you can redo your work. There is no additional charge to redo your work, and you are given one chance for redo (for a total of two submissions). All quizzes are "open book" and all answers can be found in the material.
Failure to get a passing score on the second submission will result in no certificate. Should you fail your course on the second submission, you may not retake the course for 12 months.

Care Courses Completion Deadline and Expiration Date

Courses must be successfully completed by their expiration date in order for the student to receive a certificate. The course expiration date is located next to the enrollment code in the online course enrollment code email and next to the enrollment code in the printed CourseBook enrollment code insert. CourseBook enrollment code inserts are located on the inside cover at the back of your CourseBook. Course expiration dates are also displayed next to each order in the Orders area of your Care Courses account. Failure to successfully complete a course by the expiration date will result in the course expiring and no certificate being issued. Certificates issued for courses that are successfully completed by the course expiration date do not expire.
