2017 Health, Safety and Child Development Trainings for All CCAP Providers

To help ensure the health and safety of children, IDHS is now requiring that providers complete specific health, safety and child development training, have current CPR/First Aid certification, and complete annual training hours.

Who is required to complete training?
In Illinois, all center and home-based providers participating in CCAP will have minimum training requirements. In order for a current center to continue receiving CCAP payments, these trainings must be completed by September 30, 2017. After this, annual training requirements will go into effect.

Licensed and License-Exempt Centers: For information on the specific training requirements, read the complete announcement from IDHS here. English | Español

Licensed Home-Based Providers: For information on the specific training requirements, read the complete announcement from IDHS here. EnglishEspañol

License-Exempt Home-Based Providers: For information on the specific training requirements, read the complete announcement from IDHS here. English | Español

A majority of the training is offered online through the Gateways ilearning portal. You must register first before you can take a training. Registration is not immediate and must be processed by INCCRRA staff . In addition, some sessions will be offered “live” through CCR&R

CCR&R staff can answer any questions you may have regarding this requirement and will be working to assist providers in accessing the training they need. We can be reached at 1-800-548-5563.
