Continuing Professional Development Courses

The target audience for the training is divided into the following categories:

General Public – education events that are appropriate for anyone with interest in the area of child care

Parents – training targeted at parents and other family members caring for children.

Providers – training targeted at providers caring for children in their home or a child care centre. The letters “CPD” next to the course indicates it would apply to any continuing education needs.

Some courses may be suitable for more than one category and will be identified accordingly.

If you would like to add a training opportunity to the list, please contact the Child Care Regulation Programme at childcare@gov.bm with the subject line Child Care Training.
