WAC 170-295-1110 - Washington Regulations
Washington Child Care Regulations for HIV/AIDS and Bloodborne Pathogens
Every employee who is included in the staff to child ratio in a child care program must have written proof of HIV/AIDS and blood-borne pathogen training that includes prevention, transmission, treatment and confidentiality issues. HIV/AIDS and Bloodborne courses do not meet the requirements for STARS. These courses meet a different regulation other than annual STARS training requirements, and are in addition to STARS.
We encounter providers that are confused about the requirements for HIV/AIDS and Bloodborne Pathogens. No matter where or how you complete HIV/AIDS and Bloodborne Pathogens courses, they will never earn STARS credit. These courses are required under a separate law from STARS - in addition to STARS.
Child care professionals are required to complete 10 hours of annual STARS training, after the initial Child Care Basics. When STARS training is complete, then we record it in the providers MERIT profile.
HIV/AIDS and Bloodborne Pathogens is not recorded in MERIT by the trainer. Instead, the child care professional should keep their certificate for HIV/AIDS and Bloodborne Pathogens in their employee file, and provide it to the licensor upon request.

It's nice having the visual and audio. They don't speed read through it. I have found this site very helpful with my ongoing training. Due to my busy schedule, I can access it on my time. Their quick to respond to my questions and/or concerns.

One part of the training that worked best for me was that I could work on it at my own pace. Another part that worked really well for me was that the modules were broken down into small chapters, so I could understand and recall what I learned after each chapter.

Just so very grateful to the Chat/Support line. I would not have been able to navigate my way around without all the support; thank you so much!

The whole training was a great one. I learned a lot of things and it was a great refresher for the things I already knew.

I liked that the explanations were in simple terms and easy to understand. The quizzes at the end of each lesson were extremely helpful to ensure that I was grasping the information.

I thought it was nice to have it read to me as I followed along.

It was easy to understand once I got started and it was user friendly.

The instructor reading out loud and being able to click on high lighted words or pictures were the best part of the training.

The need to listen to the whole lesson as well as being able to read it was very helpful. Each mini-quiz was also useful in catching areas I was not paying close enough attention to, making me revise that section.

This training package was a good price and it was good to be able to take both courses at the same time. I had a little trouble at the beginning and I asked for help on the messenger button and the teacher told me what to do. I will deffinately do more training here. Thank you for all your help.
