What do you do when you do not have the time to travel to the clock hour classes you need or want?
Whether you are looking for clock hours toward a national Child Development Associate Credential (CDA), state licensing requirements, or to further your own professional development, Child Care Aware® of Missouri offers you access to self-paced, clock hour classes for a fee. Self-paced training means you have the ability to log in to this website anytime, from anywhere and participate in the clock hour classes you choose. Courses are available 24 hours a day, 365 days per year. This format allows you to stop and start the classes at your own pace while earning the professional development clock hours you desire.
All clock hour classes provided through this website have been developed by the National Association of Child Care Resource and Referral Agencies (NACCRRA) and are approved by the State of Missouri to meet child care licensing professional development requirements. Please note that in Missouri, six of the annually required 12 clock hours of professional development can be taken through an on-line format such as this. Please note there is a discount in the cost of each clock hour class when you purchase larger training packages. So, the more you learn through the online trainings, the less you pay per hour.
Each clock hour class includes: a reference section citing the source of information presented, a glossary of terms, audio controls allowing you to have the slides read to you, and related quizzes and/or activities. You will print out your certificate of completion at the end of each clock hour class. Courses available cover a range of topics including CDA credential training, CDA renewal, and child abuse awareness for both family child care and center staff.
