To create a CapLEARN account you will compete a form which captures your name, email address and other additional information. CapLEARN was primarily created with child welfare professionals in mind, therefore some of the questions are not going to be relevant to you as a caregiver (select “Not Applicable”). You are only required to answer questions with a red asterisk*.

Once registration is complete, select the course category “Learning Experiences/NTDC”, then select the “Right-Time Training for NTDC Participants” (pictured below).

A check mark appears next to each section of the course complete. Once fully complete, the certificate of completion is available to download and save and print (pictured below). Course completion and certificates are managed through your CapLEARN Dashboard (pictured below).
