IDHS Required Training for all Child Care Assistance Program Providers
This page provides comprehensive resources to answer questions you may have about the training requirements for Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP) providers and how to meet them. Please review this page carefully before contacting DHS, your local CCR&R, INCCRRA, Gateways i-learning, or Gateways to Opportunity. The federal government is now requiring that child care providers complete specific health, safety and child development training, have current CPR/First Aid certification and complete annual training hours. All providers participating in CCAP have minimum training requirements as a result of the federal legislation. Please note that these training requirements have a final deadline of September 30, 2018. All training and certifications required must be completed by this date in order to continue receiving CCAP funding for eligible children in your care. IDHS and the i-learning system encourage you to complete the training as early as possible to ensure you meet the requirements on time.
