Are Care Courses accepted for in-service professional development training?

You may be wondering if Care Courses are accepted for your state training? That depends on the state where you work! Each state has different rules and regulations concerning childcare training, so it’s a good idea to do a little research before you start your training.

There are two ways we can help you find out if you can use Care Courses for your state training:

  1. On our website
  2. Over the phone or by email

On Our Website

At we have a webpage for each US state (as well as Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, the District of Columbia, and all Canadian provinces) that provides more information about how Care Courses fit with training requirements. Click here to view our US pages.

From our main map page, click on either the name of your state or its picture on the map. Look for the heading “State Childcare Training Requirements” and read that section to learn more.

You can also find your state licensing agency’s contact information at the bottom of these pages. Your licensing agency can give you more information about your state’s training requirements.
