Payment and receiving credits

How much does each lesson cost?

There is a $5.00 fee/ per lesson to receive professional development hours. You will be directed to a credit card payment screen prior to taking the assessment. You must have a credit card to complete the lesson for professional development credit using the On Demand system.

Can I pay for more than one On Demand lesson at a time?

Better Kid Care’s On Demand system has an option to prepay for multiple professional development online lessons for you and/or your staff.

You designate how many lessons you want to purchase and we send you a prepayment code. You or your staff can use this code at any time to take a lesson with Better Kid Care. You can choose to receive an email each time your prepayment code is used so you keep track of what lessons are completed by your staff.

This option is only available for online On Demand users and there is a minimum $25.00 purchase required.

When can I expect to get my completed certificate by email?

You should receive an email within 24 hours of your request. If not, please check your spam, junk, or quarantine folder before contacting the BKC office.

Are CEUs available for completing On Demand lessons?

Yes! CEUs (Continuing Education Units) are available for completing Better Kid Care On Demand lessons. At least 5 hours of lessons must be completed to request a certificate, worth .5 CEUs. One (1.0) CEU can be earned and requested after completing 10 hours of lessons.

How do I request CEUs for the lessons I've completed and receive a CEU certificate?

Certificates are given for .5 CEUs (after completing 5 hours of Better Kid Care lessons) or more. After finishing an On Demand lesson and the assessment, you will be able to go to a lesson information screen where you can choose to request CEUs. Click on the Request CEU button and you will be taken to a CEU Request Form. Print out the form and list the Better Kid Care lessons you completed, along with the dates of completion. Mail the completed CEU Request Form to Better Kid Care at the address at the bottom of the form. Better Kid Care will verify your completed lessons and mail a CEU certificate to you.
