Hawaii Child Care Training and Courses

Hawaii accepts ChildCare Education Institute (CCEI) courses in the following ways.

All Infant/Toddler Caregiver, Lead Caregiver, and Director courses must be completed in person, so CCEI courses cannot be used.

For other environments, CCEI courses can be used for:

  • Voluntary Service to track PD: PD for Registry must be submitted with the Form 2/Reflection and training must be a minimum of 1.5 hours long and completed within the last 5 years.
  • Annual Health and Safety Training to meet DHS licensing requirements: PD for Annual Health and Safety Training does not have a minimum training time and must be submitted with the DHS Annual Training cover sheet.

For additional information regarding the acceptance of CCEI’s coursework in Hawaii, visit the link above or contact the Child Care Program Office at 808-586-7058.

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.
