DCDEE Memo: September 1, 2020 Changes Coming to the CCDF Health & Safety Trainings

Through collaborative efforts, the Division of Child Development and Early Education (DCDEE), and the North Carolina Child Care Health and Safety Resource Center, a program of the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health, are excited to announce that the CCDF Health and Safety trainings are now available in the DCDEE Moodle learning platform.
 
DCDEE is grateful for the partnership with ProSolutions for past several years, as they helped meet an immediate need in North Carolina to provide CCDF Health and Safety trainings for the state's child care workforce. However, now that North Carolina-specific training in the DCDEE Moodle learning platform is available, the contract with ProSolutions, to provide free health and safety training, will end on September 30, 2020.
 
If you are currently enrolled in one or more of the CCDF Health and Safety trainings with ProSolutions, please be sure to complete your training(s) prior to September 30, 2020.
 
The CCDF Health and Safety in Child Care Trainings, developed by the North Carolina Child Care Health and Safety Resource Center, are FREE and easy to access.
 
You will need to have an NCID - the same NCID that is used to log in to WORKS and/or the CBC Portal. If you do not have an NCID already, use this link to get one: Getting your NCID Username and Password.
 
These modules can be found by using the "all courses" function or searching for CCDF - Health and Safety in Child Care in the search box at the bottom of the main Moodle page.
If you have questions about the content of the modules or would like to request technical assistance for your facility on any of these topics, contact the North Carolina Child Care Health and Safety Resource Center at www.healthychildcare.unc.edu or resourcecenter@unc.edu. If you need assistance with implementing health and safety best practices in child care, check the list of child care health consultants (CCHC) in each area who can be of assistance. If there is not a CCHC in your community, contact the NC Child Care Health and Safety Resource Center directly.
 
If you have questions about logging into Moodle, contact Brenda Williamson at brenda.williamson@dhhs.nc.gov for assistance.
