DVD Trainings

Our monthly video training sessions begin at 6PM. These group video trainings DO count as health department credits. DCC has been blessed with a monetary gift to obtain more training dvd’s. While it’s STILL unsafe to present live presentations; we’ve come up with a way to learn while still remaining safe. Providers, these educational videos have useful & interesting info just right for family day care businesses.
