Here are some of the commonly used trainings. You are welcome to find trainings from outside sources so long as they are deemed relevant to childcare.
*please note that some trainings do cost money; while you may get paid for the training hours, KCDC will not reimburse you for the cost of the course
Once you have completed a training, you must download a certificate with your name, date training completed and the number of hours of training. This certificate can be submitted to the online drop box here or turned in to Alli or Jen. If you choose to complete training hours outside of work, you will be paid for those hours.
Training hours can be earned from watching YouTube videos, reading a book or listening to a podcast
50 pages of reading counts towards 1 hour of training. If you complete a video, reading or a podcast, you must write a 1 paragraph summary for each hour of training done.
You can also earn training hours through a college course.
A high school or college class that employees are taking can be counted as in service hours. You must provide proof that the class was completed while you are on staff at KCDC and you passed the class. Any classes you take as in-service hours will not be paid.
