Training Types

Online, Self-Paced 
Online, self-paced courses are available 24/7 and include a quiz or an Evidence of Learning for you to apply your skills and knowledge.

  • Is Online, Self-Paced Training Right for You?
  • Online, self-paced training might be a good fit if you:
    • Have access to reliable internet and have basic technology skills (A basic knowledge of personal computers is expected of online learners. If you do not have a basic proficiency with computers, we encourage you to either find someone to assist you with the course or pursue face-to-face training.)
    • Have the time required to complete the course
    • Like to complete trainings on your own schedule and at your own pace

  • System Requirements
  • If you are using a Windows computer, use any of:
    • Google Chrome (latest version)
    • Firefox (latest version)
    • Microsoft Edge (latest version)

    If you are using a Mac computer, use any of:
    • Safari (latest version)
    • Google Chrome (latest version)
    • Firefox (latest version)

    If you are using a mobile device, use any of:
    • Safari in Apple iOS 8 or later
    • Google Chrome in Apple iOS 8 or later
    • Google Chrome in Android OS 4.1 or later

    Due to the wide variety of mobile devices and software, we cannot guarantee compatibility. While more and more courses are becoming mobile-compatible, the best learning experience requires a larger screen than most smartphones or small tablets. We recommend a desktop or laptop computer for all courses.

  • Receiving Credit
  • Level 1 Training

    • Level 1 courses include quiz questions that are automatically scored. You must achieve a score of 80% or higher to receive credit.
    • Upon achieving a passing score, credit will automatically be awarded and appear on your Learning Record.
    • If you do not receive a passing score, you will be prompted to retake the course.

  • Level 2 Training

    • An instructor-graded Evidence of Learning (EOL) is required in order to receive credit for any Level 2 training. You will complete the EOL throughout the course.
    • You are expected to complete and submit your own work. Collaboration and discussion between learners is encouraged, but your EOL must be written in your own words.
    • Please allow up to 10 business days from the time you submit your training to receive your score and feedback from an instructor. Upon achieving a passing score, credit will be awarded and the course will appear on your Learning Record.
    • If your EOL does not meet expectations, you will be notified via the notes section of your Interactive Classroom. You will need to start the course again to submit your revised work before your course expires. If your EOL is still insufficient after you resubmit, you will not receive credit for completing the training. You may re-register at another time and complete the training.

  • Certificates will not be given. Your Growing Futures Learning Record or DHS Licensing Training Record will serve as proof of verified training.

  • Extensions and Transfers
  • No transfers are granted for online, self-paced courses. You have 90 days from the date of registration to complete any online, self-paced course, including any necessary retakes. Extensions will not be granted. If you do not complete all coursework within this time, you will need to re-register and start the course from the beginning, previous completion history will be cleared.
