CECPD offers the following online courses:
Entry Level Child Care Training Online meets the child care center licensing requirement for the entry level training for the first 90 days of employment in Oklahoma. You may print your certificate after completing the class. You may want to print multiple copies to give to your employer and keep for your own records. This training is not required when previously received, unless the individual has not been employed at a licensed program within the last five years. You do not have to retake it if you move to another child care center or family child care home.
NOTE: ELCCT cannot be used to meet level or renewal criteria for the Oklahoma Director's Credential (ODC). It will only count one time to meet Professional Development Ladder (PDL) requirements.
This course will introduce you to the responsibilities of child-care directors. It will also assist you in becoming an efficient and effective leader.
