SIDS Prevention - 1 Credit Hour

Thank you for registering for SIDS Prevention!

What is SIDS and how can it be prevented? Sudden Infant Death Syndrome is one of the leading killers of infant children. Statistically a child is more at risk when being taken care of by a non-parent. In this class you will learn what SIDS is and what steps you as a childcare provider can take to prevent it. Some of the information is repetitive however each article gives some different information and suggestions.

In this class you will be asked to read articles and/or watch videos concerning the prevention of SIDS. At the end of the class, you will take a final test consisting of the questions about the material you have studied along the way. You must receive an 80% score to earn your certificate. You can take the test as many times as needed to pass by clicking on “Restart Quiz”. Once you have passed the test, a certificate will appear. Click on the downward pointing arrow under the small printer icon on the left side of the page under the certificate to download the certificate. Then print the certificate. Please complete the class survey so we know how we are doing and what we can do to make your experience better. A record of completion of the class will be kept in your user account along with a copy of the certificate. You may reprint your certificate at any time upon completion of the class.
