This is a self-paced course that and can be saved and resumed during any point. Assessment question and answer sessions during the course monitor the students’ progress, and support the student’s progression, and learning objectives. There is a test at the end of each course. The questions on the test are completely based on the materials covered in the specific course. The student must get 70% or better to pass the test. If 70% is not achieved, then the training system automatically takes the student back through the course to review the materials that were missed on the test. The student is then returned to the test to try again for a second attempt if needed.

    I liked the fact that they include things that should be common knowledge but it's a nice reminder course.

    I learned that if its broken throw it away, when in doubt throw it out. If any objects are sharp or broken discard of them immediately. Fences should be around the facility especially around the play ground. Children should be supervised outside and inside at all times. Nothing with strings hanging down, like blinds, ropes, and thing a child can hang themselves with. An infants crib should be 3 feet away from a window. No toys or a lot of bedding should be placed in the infants crib while they are napping
