"Another enjoyable class from Raelene. So many new ideas have come from the classes I have taken from her. And it is so easy to take these self pace classes. You can get them done in one night or over several days. Go at your own pace. And even though its self paced I feel like Raelene is there to hear your questions and answer them.

I loved that I could do it at my own pace! I loved that it was so easy to use and user friendly. I definitely would take another on-demand course again!!!

I liked how we could do it in our own time, it kept track of where we were at during the training, the speaker was fun to listen to, and gave great examples. She gave excellent advice and I am excited to start implementing it into my program.

  • How long are the courses?
    Each course is designed to qualify for 23 training hours and can be easily completed within that time. It includes approximately 1.25-1.5 hours of an edited pre-recorded video from an engaging live presentation by Raelene Ostberg, M.Ed. You watch short video segments, provide your insight or thoughts, and write short reflections as you apply the information to your early care environment. To receive your training hours for this course, you must spend a minimum of 1.75 hours for the 2-hour and 2.5 for the 3-hour fully completing all survey questions with insight learned during the course, viewing 100% of the videos, and completing a brief survey.
  • My life is CRAZY! Do I really have time to take this online course?
    Absolutely! The online courses contain video segments, breaking the content into smaller, more manageable lessons (short course, but a huge potential impact). You can squeeze in a lesson or two as you have time. Many students watch lessons on their tablet or smart phones while on the go (doctor's and therapists' waiting rooms are great for this!)
  • How long do I have to complete a course?
    You can complete the course any time this year. All courses end at midnight on December 31st, 2023. You can take the course in little bits or do it all at once – whatever works best for you.
  • Will I receive a personalized Certificate of Completion?
    YES! Simply complete all course elements, illustrating what you are learning in the course. After completing your course, you will receive your certificate instantly. If you have a Develop Account in Minnesota or are in the Wisconsin Registry, your attendance will also be entered within one business day.
  • Do I receive training hours in Develop in Minnesota or the Wisconsin Registry?
    Yes! Simply complete all course elements, illustrating what you have learned in the course. After completing your course, you will receive your training hours entered into Develop (MN) and/or the Wisconsin Registry within one business day.
  • Are there group rates for centers/groups of staff?
    YES! There are discounts for groups of five or more. Simply write us a note with the course titles and the number of participants, and we will design a proposal just for you!
  • What if the course doesn't work for me?
    We would never want you to be unhappy! If, after completing the course, you aren’t 100% satisfied, we will provide a full refund.
