Real Time Online Trainings

In response to the social distancing required as part of COVID-19 prevention and mitigation, the Vermont Child Development Division has temporarily authorized approved sponsors of professional development in Vermont to offer trainings to early childhood and afterschool professionals in real time via online methods.

Real time online trainings use technology that allows trainer and participants to interact in real time using video and audio communication (e.g. Zoom). CLICK HERE for more information about delivery of real time online trainings in Vermont.

Online First Aid and CPR

The Child Development Division will allow online-only First Aid and CPR trainings completed during March, April, or May, 2020 to meet the regulatory requirement. If you complete online-only First Aid and/or CPR trainings during March, April, or May 2020, please submit certification cards for these trainings to Northern Lights for verification and upload into your Quality and Credential Account in BFIS.
