Required Health and Safety Training for CCDBG Reauthorization

The following CCDBG required trainings must to be completed in order to meet the federal training requirements:

  • NJ Health, Safety and Child Growth and Development: Basic Requirement for Licensing
  • Identifying Child Abuse and Neglect - Mandated Reporting
  • First Aid and CPR Training (staff/providers may be required to maintain certification to meet Office of Licensing requirements and regulations)

 
Individuals who completed the previous NJ Health and Safety Basics module that was 6 hours and the 2-hour Foundations of Child Development modules, or the Better Kid Care 8-hour NJ Health and Safety Basics training (released April 2018), do not need to take the new NJ Health, Safety and Child Growth and Development: Basic Requirement for Licensing. Both previous modules meet the CCDBG training requirements. The Identifying Child Abuse and Neglect - Mandated Reporting training (2 hours) has not changed.
 
If you repeat the training modules for CCDBG required training, you will not receive additional training hours or a new certificate. Staff transitioning from school year care to summer care or vice versa are not required to repeat CCDBG training requirements listed above.
 
New Jersey’s CCDBG training provides basic information on health and safety. Early childhood professionals are encouraged to take progressive training that will provide information that builds on their basic knowledge of health and safety and enhances their own professional development.
