Posted Tuesday, February 20, 2018 by Shelly Nye
Update: As of 4/20/18, all scholarships have been awarded and the application process is closed.
Are you an active member of the Registry?
Have you heard about the new CCDBG Health and Safety training that is now required?
Do you wonder when these training topics will be readily available?
Do you like taking online training?
If so, read on because we have THE perfect opportunity for you! The Nevada Registry, in partnership with the ChildCare Education Institute, has developed an eight-hour online CCDBG Health and Safety training package that includes all of the new topics (Emergency Preparedness, Building and Physical Premises Safety, Shaken Baby Syndrome, Medication Administration and Transportation Safety). Now you can satisfy all of the new training requirements in one fell swoop from the comfort of your home. But wait, there’s more!
The Nevada Registry is offering 1000 – yes ONE THOUSAND scholarships to qualifying active members of the Registry. What this means is that not only can you complete all of the new training in one place, you may be able to do it completely FREE OF CHARGE. The scholarship opportunity is designed to help professionals working in licensed child care programs complete the newly required CCDBG health and safety requirements in accordance with State Child Care Licensing regulations. And just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, it does!
Not only will you be able to complete eight hours of required training for FREE ($120 value*), if selected, this scholarship includes a subscription to CCEI ($99 value) that allows you to take an additional UNLIMITED number of CCEI online courses (over 100 courses are available) during your subscription period. This means that you can be in compliance with Child Care Licensing’s new requirements for health and safety training AND you could potentially complete all of your annual training requirements while you are at it! In fact, if your timing is just right, you could complete enough training to cover TWO years of requirements if you complete 24 hours BEFORE your facility’s licensure date and another 24 hours AFTER your facility’s licensure date if it falls within the subscription period ($720 value*). That’s an unbeatable offer!
*Based on CCEI’s current $15 per hour cost.
None! You just have to be eligible for the scholarship, apply for the scholarship AND if selected, complete the eight-hour training package in order to be granted access to the full catalog of courses.
In order to apply, you must:
- Be an active member with The Nevada Registry.
