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 promptly so you can get your credit and apply for your reimbursement through MERIT, as long as we have your MERIT number.
Although the DCYF does not require your classes to be in your MERIT account by the December 31 deadline, we want to make sure you get the credit you deserve! At the end of the year, we will report completed classes every day to make sure your account is up to date. You can also use your certificate of completion as proof that you completed your course.
So, make it easy to meet your training requirements with our online classes and no hassles MERIT reporting!
