Changes for North Carolina Health and Safety

Effective September 8, 2020, ProSolutions Training will no longer offer the free 24-hour North Carolina health and safety package. Since 2017, ProSolutions Training has partnered with the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) to offer the free state-approved package. However, DHHS is now offering North Carolina-specific health and safety training through the state’s Division of Child Development and Early Education (DCDEE) Moodle learning platform. If you have questions about logging into Moodle, contact Brenda Williamson at brenda.williamson@dhhs.nc.gov for assistance.

To receive the 24-hour health and safety certificate from ProSolutions Training, all courses in this package must be completed by September 30, 2020. Otherwise, your coursework will expire. However, you will still be able to access and print individual course certificates and a transcript of your completed courses through your ProSolutions Training account, which will remain in effect.



ALL COURSES INCLUDE:

Required Health and Safety Trainings for North Carolina Early Care and Education Professionals

The Child Care Development Block Grant (CCDBG), also called the Child Care Development Fund (CCDF), is a federal grant that provides funding for child care subsidies for low-income working families and improvements in child care quality. NOTE: Before ordering the health and safety trainings, you must register for an NCID. Click here for detailed instructions on getting an NCID.

The 2014 reauthorization of CCDBG, brought new state requirements for the first time in 18 years. These requirements promote the health and safety of children in child care, create continuity of access to subsidies for low-income families, better educate parents and the general public about the child care choices available to them, and improve the overall quality of early care and education programs. States must have pre-service or orientation and on-going minimum health and safety training requirements in place for child care providers.

The trainings must cover the following content areas:

  1. Prevention and control of infectious diseases, including immunization;
  2. Administration of medication, with standards for parental consent;
  3. Prevention of and response to emergencies due to food and allergic reactions;
  4. Building and physical premises safety, including identification of and protection from hazards that can cause bodily injury such as electrical hazards, bodies of water, and vehicular traffic;
  5. Emergency preparedness and response planning for emergencies resulting from a natural disaster, or a man-caused event;
  6. Handling and storage of hazardous materials and the appropriate disposal of biocontaminants;
  7. Precautions in transporting children, if applicable;
  8. Prevention of shaken baby syndrome and abusive head trauma;
  9. CPR and First Aid
  10. "Recognizing and Responding to Suspicions of Child Maltreatment" as required in Rule .0705(g)
  11. Prevention of sudden infant death syndrome and use of safe sleeping practices.

North Carolina’s Implementation

Child care rules effective October 1, 2017 require all child care providers who have direct responsibility for the care and oversight of children, including center administrators, and family child care home operators, to complete trainings in the listed content areas. After the first year of employment, these individuals are required to complete health and safety trainings in each of the topic areas every five years. To help child care providers meet the new training requirements, the Division of Child Development and Early Education has contracted with ProSolutions Training to provide FREE online training modules.
