HOW TO GET YOUR CLASSES IN YOUR MERIT ACCOUNT
SafeGard Classes Online offers over 200 STARS approved courses for Washington State child care providers to meet their annual 10 hours of continuing education requirements. All classes are 100% online and accessible immediately after ordering on any device, including laptops, phones and tablets. Your certificate of completion will also be available online immediately after completing each course.
Licensed providers can also get reimbursed up to $250 per year for all approved STARS classes you complete, on a first-come, first-serve basis. Once you have completed each class, SG Classes Online will report your completed class within 24-48 business hours so you can get your credit and apply for your reimbursement through MERIT, as long as we have your MERIT STARS ID in our system.
