Alaska Childcare Training Requirements:

In addition to completing the Child Care Licensing Orientation, caregivers will have additional facility orientation training, specific health and safety training, and annual professional development training requirements based on their position, education qualifications, and facility type. The orientation training must be completed as part of the facility orientation requirement within three (3) months from the date of hire. Annual professional development training must be obtained by care providers each year based on their date of hire. 

The annual professional development training requirement is twenty-four (24) clock hours for a full-time caregiver and twelve (12) clock hours for a part-time caregiver who works less than fifteen (15) clock hours a week; or at least one (1) college credit hour in early childhood development, child development, or child psychology, and must be obtained each year based on their date of hire. Annual professional development must include at least one hour of approved health and safety training from Alaska’s Approved Health and Safety Training List. Lillio Academy is NOT approved to provide health and safety training. 

The remaining training hours can include the following: 

  • Other health and safety 

  • Child growth and development

  • Planning learning activities 

  • Guidance and discipline techniques

  • Linkages with community services
