Care Courses offers online training classes and book courses for child care providers, home visitors and parents. Use our childcare professional development clock hours for most US States continuing education inservice requirements and registries, for CDA Certification (Child Development Associate Credential), for CDA Renewal and for NAC Renewal. All our professional development courses give both Clock Hours and CEUs toward CDA Renewal. 

Our informative child care training programs can be completed anywhere and at any time. Study at home, at the park, or wherever is most convenient for you. Then go online to complete and submit your quiz. Our friendly, knowledgeable instructors offer unlimited free student support by phone or email, and are always happy to help!

Early childhood child care training can be fun, interesting, and relevant to your daily work and experience! We've been offering professional development classes for over 20 years; we love what we do and truly want to make your experience fantastic.

What Idaho students say:
"It [Hiring the Best] was by far one of the best courses I've taken in a long time. I've been doing this for almost 30 years and while I'm required to take classes, they are the same ones over and over and this was so refreshing. Thanks so much and rest assured this is where I'll be coming for all of my trainings in the future." – Boise, Idaho
