HOW TO SELECT THE BEST TRAINING CLASSES FOR YOUR NEEDS
Trying to find the right training can feel like putting together a puzzle without a picture:
- Which topics do I need?
- How many hours are required?
- Are the classes approved in my state?
- How much are they?
- Are the classes accessible?
We understand this can be a daunting task. Whether you select our classes or others, we want to help you find exactly what you need.
First, find out if your state has specific requirements for topic areas and how many training hours are required each year. You can use our state resources page to help you find links to your state's early learning agencies. Our state pages will also indicate if our classes can be used to meet your licensing requirements.
Next, determine costs. SG Classes Online has affordable individual classes as low as $10 and many discounted state packages and bundled Knowledge Collections courses (multi-class courses on our most popular topics). We even have 2 FREE classes so you can give us a try before you buy!
One more thing to keep in mind is accessibility. If they're in-person classes, are they available in your area at the time you need? Another option is to consider online classes. Our classes are 100% online from start to finish. And you can access your classes on any device: desktop, laptop, tablet or phone. Online learning is a convenient, affordable option that provides a quality learning experience.
How to select classes from SG Classes Online:
Once you've determined the requirements for your state, you can start selecting your classes. Our Childcare Training page has our entire class catalog with convenient navigation so you can go directly to the classes you want.
Start by selecting your state from the drop-down menu. This will show you whether each class is approved for your state (a green checkmark in the class box means "approved" and a red cirle with a line through it means it is not approved).
You can then either scroll down to browse our catalog or click on any of the category names to see specific classes. Click on See More Classes to show all the classes available for each category.
Once you find classes you're interested in, you can click on Learn More within the class box to see a preview of the class and get more details about the contents. If you're ready to make your selection, click on "Buy It" to add that class to your cart.
After selecting all your classes, go to Complete Your Purchase and follow the quick and easy checkout process. Immediately after purchase, your classes will be added to your account so you can get started at your convenience!
