Self Study Program



 Available to Family Child Care Home providers and Day Care Centers, the Self Study Program is an alternative way to obtain training hours required by DCFS. Most Self Study DVD’s are 30 minutes in length*. The self study modules include the DVD, instructions on completing the module and questions; combining true/false, fill in the blanks, essay formats and finally a project.  Completed and returned modules are worth two hours of training credit (unless otherwise noted). Modules may be completed from the convenience of your own home and at a time that fits your schedule. If you would like more information on how to access this program please call Marisol at 815.494.9442 ext. 218.
