I need a person other than myself to take a course but I am paying for it.

  • We understand your situation. You can indeed pay for another individual's training during the billing process when entering the payment information. However, it's important to note that the individual taking the course must use their own account that is registered in their name with their email address. ChildCareEd offers a Group Admin feature that can be utilized if you are an administrator, director, or owner of a child care program.

I actually bought a class meant for another person.

  • If you've purchased a class intended for someone else, please contact our office through the "Message Us" feature or by emailing info@childcareed.com. We can assist in transferring the class to the appropriate account. Be sure to confirm that the individual receiving the course already has an account with ChildCareEd.

What is a CEU?

  • A CEU stands for "Continuing Education Units," which are equivalent to clock hours. Specifically, 1 CEU equals 10 hours of training. CEUs can be further broken down into increments of 0.1, equivalent to one hour. The minimum training duration offered through ChildCareEd is 1 Clock Hour or 0.1 CEU.

How does online training work?

  • Our online training involves several steps. You'll start by completing an online presentation, engage in self-check exercises, and conclude with a post-test. Upon successfully finishing the training, your certificate will be emailed to you. However, please note that the Emergency Preparedness online training has an additional requirement – a plan that needs to be submitted for a trainer's review. Please remember that we cannot issue partial clock hours for a training unless it is an Instructor-led course.

How long do I have to complete an online training?
