Care Courses CourseBook Format


Since 1990 Care Courses has been offering distance learning in the form of CourseBooks. CourseBooks are professionally printed books that are about the size of a magazine. They are sent to you through the US mail and other carriers and include the learning material, self-checks, notebook assignments, and course enrollment code which gives access to a course's online component.

This portable magazine-like format allows you to complete your coursework wherever you go. You can read them anywhere, and they can be kept for quick reference.  Because this format is mailed to you, it can take up to 10 business days to get to you via our free standard shipping. By choosing Priority shipping you can typically reduce this time to 3-5 business days.

Access the mobile-friendly online component of the CourseBook using the included enrollment code. In the online component you will find course videos, student discussion area, contact my trainer feature, course documents, and additional course resources and features. Each Care Course has quizzes and assessments that must be completed and submitted for grading online using a phone, tablet, or computer. Submission instructions are included within each CourseBook and online.

The online component of our CourseBook courses work best with an updated version of Google Chrome on a computer, tablet, or mobile phone. An internet connection is required. Please click here for more specifics on the requirements for our courses..

If you fail a lesson (69% or less) you must redo the work and resubmit for grading. There is no additional charge to redo your work, and you are given one chance for redo (for a total of two submissions). All quizzes are "open book" and all answers can be found in the material. Failure to get a passing score on the second submission will result in no certificate.

We have trainers/instructors on staff who can discuss the material with you by phone or email 9-5pm ET Monday-Friday and most evenings and weekends by email. 1-800-685-7610 or

Official online certificates of completion include the name of the course, number of clock hours, number of IACET CEUs, your name, the date, certificate ID number, your student ID number, Care Courses identifying information, and any specific wording required in your state. Certificates are located in the My Courses area of your account to the right of the course title.

Need help on your course? If you have questions you may email us at or call us as many times as you need at no additional charge.

Student Comments

"It was a pleasure to take the course through your program! The book arrived really fast and they helped me right away with my account. The program was thorough and informative and I enjoyed taking the course. The online quiz option was fantastic! Thanks so much!" – Wilmington, Delaware

"I want to say I am very impressed with Care Courses - I received my materials very promptly. I enjoyed the materials: very insightful and helpful. The tests were easy to take on-line. I really appreciated flexibility of the on-line courses I needed for registration, but also the ability to read the materials from the book, which you don't get at just on-line courses. I think you hear it all the time from your students. Never the less, my experience was above of what I expected and I would definitely recommend you to other caregivers. Thank you!" – Bel Air, Maryland

"I am very pleased with the way the care course [Social-Emotional Development] went. I did the quiz online and am very pleased with the way that went also. I will encourage anyone having to take a course to take this route with Care Courses. I plan to take another course in the future." –Toivola, Michigan

"I just wanted to respond by saying that the prompt service I have gotten each time I have used Care Courses is wonderful. Within two days of my order my books have arrived. Taking the test online is fast and so easy. Thank you for offering this service for teachers on such a busy schedule." – Germantown, Maryland

"Everything went great with my Care Courses order! I ordered the CourseBooks and I really liked that I could do the quizzes on my own time without any deadlines. I completed my quizzes online and got my certificates in the mail very quickly. I am very happy that I chose Care Courses and I will definitely order again in the future." - Holbrook, New York
