Oklahoma Child Care Training and Courses

ChildCare Education Institute (CCEI) is an approved training organization through the Center for Early Childhood Professional Development (CECPD) for the Oklahoma Professional Development Registry.  As such, CCEI training is accepted by the Oklahoma Department of Human Services, Child Care Services division, to provide annual in-service training requirements.  In addition, CCEI is approved to automatically transmit course completions directly to the registry and does so weekly for all CCEI students who have included a valid registry ID number on their CCEI profile. 

CCEI’s Director’s Certificate may be used to fulfill 10 out of the 40 administration/management clock hours of the Oklahoma Director’s Credential (Bronze Level). Additionally, CCEI courses can be used for 6 of the renewal clock hours for any level. For more information about the Oklahoma Director’s Credential levels, please see the criteria document here.

The CCEI course HLTH110: Protecting Infants: Reducing the Risk of SIDS and Shaken Baby Syndrome DOES NOT MEET the Oklahoma DHS Child Care Services-Licensing requirement for safe sleep training.
