Nevada Childcare Training Requirements

All Care Courses (with the exception of Child Abuse and Neglect: A Caregiver's Guide to Adverse Childhood Experiences, Emergency Preparedness in Child Care, Transportation Safety, Medication Procedures in Child Care, and Understanding and Managing Allergies in Child Care) are approved by the Nevada Registry for professional development training hours for directors, caregivers, providers, volunteers and licensees in child care facilities including child care centers, family homes, group homes, residential child care institutions, shelter child care institutions, special needs facilities, nurseries for infants and toddlers and outdoor youth programs. All Care Courses certificates include Nevada Registry’s course approval codes.

Our course Keeping Infants Safe may be used for annual clock hours in Nevada, but it cannot be used to meet the Nevada requirement for SIDS training.

Our courses are listed on the Nevada Registry website. First click the “Training Calendar” link at the top of the page, then select “Online” under the “Training Format” drop-down menu.

What Nevada Students say: 

"I simply love care courses. I have a large family including three very young children. Care Courses provides me a way to continue my education in my own time, at my own pace. I find that I am able to absorb the information available much better and can apply it to my daily life. I find each course that I have taken extremely informative and very simple to follow along. I have applied many things that I have learned in my classroom and passed them on to other educators like myself. I rave about Care Courses and will continue to do so. Thank you for a wonderful service, it is much appreciated."
