All Care Courses are accepted by the Wisconsin Department of Children and Families (DCF) toward the continuing education training requirements and in-service training requirements for those who work in group child care centers, family child care centers and day camps. This includes DCF training for administrators, center directors, child care teachers, employees, assistant child care teachers, providers, emergency back-up providers, counselors, volunteers, substitutes, and food service personnel. Care Courses are approved Tier Training through the Wisconsin Professional Development Approval System.
All Care Courses are approved by The Registry. For Tier Training credit, please add your Wisconsin Registry ID number to your Care Courses account. Once you have added it, please email us so that we can report your training. Thank you!
