ChildCare Education Institute (CCEI), an accredited, child care training online institution, offers the trial course ADM100: The Eco-Friendly Child Care Center: Green Lifestyle and Environmental Health at no cost in January to provide new users the opportunity to try quality, online child care training and in recognition of National Radon Action Month, as designated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Among the numerous environmental hazards within homes and child care facilities, radon exposure is the leading cause of lung cancer deaths among nonsmokers in the U.S. It is also a preventable threat. In CCEI’s course on Green Lifestyle and Environmental Health, child care providers receive an overview of what constitutes an eco-friendly child care environment, with a major focus on the hazards of environmental exposure and recommended practices for maintaining a safe, healthy environment for young children. Upon successful completion of the course, students will earn 0.1 IACET CEU and receive a printable Certificate of Completion.
ADM100 is available to new users as a trial course awarded upon CCEI account creation during January. Account holders without an active, annual professional development individual or center-based training subscription may purchase courses through online enrollment.

Taylor, President and CEO of CCEI. “This course helps inform providers of many easy, basic actions they can take in order to ensure the safest, healthiest possible environment.”
