Georgia Child Care Training and Courses

ChildCare Education Institute (CCEI) is an Approved Sponsor Organization (TR-ASO-22) with the Georgia Professional Development System (GaPDS) for Early Childhood Educators. As such, all courses provided by CCEI are accepted by Georgia Bright from the start to meet annual, in-service training requirements.

The listing of CCEI GaPDS-approved courses may be found by searching for ChildCare Education Education Institute under the Approved Sponsor Organization category on the GaPDS Approved Training site.

CCEI now adds course attendance regularly, which will appear as a checkmark on the student’s GaPDS account. This attendance will then be finalized at the end of each quarter (March, June, September, and December). If a student needs their attendance finalized before the end of the quarter, they can email their completion certificate to

Please Note: The CCEI course HLTH107: CCDBG Health and Safety Basics will NOT satisfy the Health and Safety Orientation Training requirement, please take our Georgia Health and Safety Orientation Certificate – 10 Hours bundle to satisfy this requirement.

In addition, CCEI’s Georgia Director’s Certificate program meets the Georgia BFTS 40-hour director training requirement for child care learning center program directors.

CCEI is an approved training partner by the Council for Professional Recognition (the Council) and coursework can be used to fulfill the training requirements needed to obtain the National CDA Credential in English and Spanish.
