ChildCare Education Institute Announces New Five Clock-Hour Courses Added to their Professional Development Library
Duluth, GA/ May 25, 2011 – ChildCare Education Institute (CCEI), an IACET approved and nationally accredited distance training institution dedicated exclusively to the child care industry, is proud to announce the addition of several new, five (5) clock-hour courses to their Professional Development Course Catalog.
Early child care providers are required to meet annual, in-service training requirements for ongoing education. In order to further satisfy licensing requirements, CCEI has introduced twelve (12) new, five clock-hour professional development courses worth 0.5 CEUs each, now available in the CCEI Course Catalog. Courses offered include: Curriculum Enrichment, Inclusion and Special Needs, Child Care Management, Observation and Assessment, and various others. In addition to these extended professional development courses, child care staff may continue to meet training requirements with certificate options in CCEI's Certificate Programs of Study catalog.
"CCEI is committed to meeting the evolving needs of the child care workforce. Many states encourage providers to take courses longer than one hour so that they get deep information on one topic instead of top level information on many topics. We added these new multiple hour courses to meet this need," said Maria C. Taylor, President and CEO of CCEI.
ChildCare Education Institute (CCEI) is a distance training institution dedicated to providing the child care industry with professional development programs and courses to meet their education requirements. Over 100 professional development courses are available in English and Spanish to meet annual training and licensing requirements, as well as online certificate course of study programs, such as the Child Development Associate (CDA), Director's Certificate, and others. CCEI is accredited by the Accrediting Commission of the Distance Education and Training Council and is approved by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training to award IACET Continuing Education Units (CEUs). CCEI is authorized under the Nonpublic Postsecondary Educational Institutions Act of 1990, license number 837.
