This certificate provides students with basic skills in the early care and education of infants and toddlers. It is designed for students just entering the early care and education field, those who wish to focus their education and work experience with infants and toddlers, and for those already employed in childcare but who need an immediate certificate to continue working in an Oregon licensed facility. A student may continue to seek the associate degree seamlessly, since the certificate classes are wholly contained within the degree program.
You may earn a certificate of completion by successfully completing the required 19 credit hours with a grade of “C” or better in all courses. Proof of first aid/CPR and food handler cards will be required upon completion of the certificate.
