All online Care Courses (with the exception of Keeping Infants Safe, Block Play, Medication Procedures in Child Care, and Music and Movement) are approved through the Missouri Workshop Calendar and may be used towards the 12 clock hours of child-care related training required annually for those who work in child care centers, group day care homes, family day care homes and license exempt child care facilities. This includes center directors, child care providers, caregivers, assistant caregivers and volunteers.
For OPEN Initiative Registry training credit, please add your OPEN Initiative Registry ID number to your Care Courses account. Once you have added it, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can report your training. Thank you!
Please note: Only online format courses may be used to meet your annual training requirements. Courses in our Coursebook format may not be used by Missouri caregivers to meet annual training requirements.
Our course Safe Baby, Safe Child may be used towards annual training but does not meet the Missouri requirement for safe sleep training.
