ChildCare Education Institute (CCEI), an accredited, distance learning institution, offers its individual, annual online child care training subscriptions for only $79 (a $20 savings) on Friday, November 23, 2012, to celebrate the official beginning of the holiday shopping season.

The day following Thanksgiving is an annual tradition in the United States that kicks off the holiday shopping season. For years now, this day brings promotional sales to shoppers and is considered by many to be the biggest shopping day of the year. CCEI is joining the fun this year by offering individual, annual training subscriptions at a discounted price of $79, which includes unlimited access to the online professional development library of 100+ child care training courses. Students enjoy CCEI because the courses are self-paced, available in English and Spanish, and cover a range of applicable child care topics. Each course hour grants 0.1 IACET CEU, and CEU credit is included in the cost of the program.

This limited time offer is available to anyone without a current annual subscription. Existing account holders may purchase a subscription when they log in to their account, select Professional Development along the left navigation bar, enter the promo code BLACKFRIDAY, and follow the onscreen prompts to complete their purchase. New users will need to create an account with CCEI and verify their account through their email before purchasing the discounted subscription with the instructions above.

“We hope this promotional price will assist child care providers, whether center-based or home-based, with meeting their training requirements for the year,” said Maria C. Taylor, President and CEO of CCEI. “CCEI is proud to offer our high quality online training at an affordable price.”
