What’s the difference between a Care Courses certificate and transcript?

Once you have successfully completed your course(s), we know that you need proof of all your hard work! Whether you are trying to present this information to your boss, state licensor, or another individual who needs proof of your coursework, we offer two different options that certify your successful completion.

Care Courses Certificate of Completion

A certificate is an official document that we create in our office on special paper. Certificates are only issued on this paper, and cannot be faxed or emailed. Any time you successfully complete a course, we create a certificate and send it to you by mail. To receive a certificate you must successfully complete an entire course (we don’t give partial credit for coursework). A certificate is for one successfully completed course.

Cost: Certificates are always free!

Your certificate will include:

  • your name
  • the title of the course
  • the date you successfully completed the course
  • the number of clock hours and CEUs the course is worth
  • our trainer’s signature
  • a place for your signature (sign it when it arrives!)
  • specific training information (topics, core knowledge, etc.) if your state requires it

Certificates can be presented to state licensors, employers, and any other person who needs proof that you have completed your training. If you ever need another copy of your certificate, call us – we’ll send you a new one free of charge.

Official Care Courses Transcript

A transcript is an official document that lists all the courses that you have successfully completed with Care Courses. Transcripts are nice to have, but they are not usually required by licensors or other officials. Transcripts are often used to show completion of all courses for your CDA.

Cost: Transcripts cost $10.00

A transcript includes:

  • successfully completed course titles with clock hours/CEUs
  • a short sentence briefly describing the course contents (not the specific state topics listed on the certificates)
  • our director’s signature

A transcript costs $10*, but you only need to order one if you require it for a specific reason, such as renewal of your CDA or other credential. Call us to order one and we will be happy to send it to you, either by regular mail or to your email address!

Whether you need a certificate, a transcript, or an answer to a different question, call us at 1-800-685-7610, Monday through Friday, 9-5 ET, or email us days, evenings and weekends: info@CareCourses.com. We’re here to help!

*If you order one of our CDA sets, we’ll include a transcript for free when you successfully complete the last course in the set!
