Our course, Transportation Safety, may be used for annual clock hours in Colorado, but it does not meet the Colorado Precautions in Transporting Children training requirement.

"The courses were fabulous and so convenient! I was able to get all of my required credit hours plus more over the course of a weekend at home. Thank you so much for offering such a wide variety [Friendly Environments, Safe Environments, Social-Emotional Development in Young Children, and Partnerships with Parents] of courses. Thanks!"
- Windsor, CO
"I love all the Care Courses I have taken. I am in the process of taking three [Toilet Learning, Transitions and Other Troublesome Times, and Mixed-Age Groups] of your courses and find them extremely helpful. Also I have shared some of the suggestions regarding potty training with one of my families. Their little one although 3 years old has had no interest in potty training and they were a bit worried when they were seeing no results at all. I wanted to be a support to them but felt he was not ready for toilet training yet and did not want the little one to get frustrated. After reading some of the information I suggested, they realized that he is just not ready for toilet training at this time. They have decided to be patient and wait a couple of months before trying again. WHEW!! Thank you for some great info." - Westminster, CO
"This course [Abuse and Neglect] was so interesting. I truly enjoyed it. Thank you for being there for us. Looking forward to the next one." - Colorado Springs, CO
"Thank you so very much for all your company does. With the ever changing rules and regulations, your company continues to have the resources needed to obtain my credits needed. Your customer service exceeds excellent. I enjoy the professional conduct and knowledge your company delivers every time I call." - Westminster, CO
