IMPORTANT: To avoid taking the wrong course, you should carefully read the following BEFORE starting.


  1. Do you work in child care or early childhood education in the State of Georgia?  If your answer is NO, then you do NOT need to take this course.

  2. For your current employment position in the State of Georgia, have you completed ALL of the first-year basic six training hours required by DECAL for new employees?  If your answer is YES, then you should NOT take this course.  You need to take the course Health and Safety Orientation Training (click on the title to go to that course.)

  3. If you work in child care or early childhood education in the State of Georgia, have NOT completed ALL of the first year basic six training for your current position, and answer YES to any of the following, you must complete an approved health and safety orientation and first year basic six training.  Do you...
  • ​Work in a facility licensed by Georgia's Department of Early Care and Learning (DECAL)?
  • Work in a license-exempt facility that accepts CAPS (Child and Parent Services) subsidies?
  • ​Operate as an informal CAPS provider in the State of Georgia?


If you answered YES to any of these last three questions, you may take our course Health and Safety Orientation & First Year Basic Six Training to meet both your orientation AND your first year basic six training requirements. This course consists of four two-hour segments, all of which must be completed before you receive a certificate and which should be taken in sequence.  You will pay for the entire course at the end of the fourth segment.  The cost for the eight hours of training is $40.
