"I would just like to say thank you for such a great course. I just finished Managing Health and Safety in Child Care. I wish I would have taken this when I first opened my family daycare. I learned a lot from this course. I think this should be a mandatory course before anyone can work at a center or become a licensed daycare provider. Thank you as always for providing a great course and I will continue to do my training through you." - Union Bridge, Maryland

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.

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.
