  1. Course
  2. Corresponding Quiz
  3. Assessment/Feedback Survey*

will earn a Certificate of Completion & Two (2) Hours STARS Credit.

*New Assessment For Completion

 Online coursework completion requirements (excluding the 30 Hour Basics) now have a required assessment component in order to receive STARS credit. DCYF and SOWA are in partnership to ensure the online coursework has the same level of learning outcomes that provided in an in-person training. 

Important: This online coursework is for people working with School Age children (ages 5-12 years old). If you are working with preschool & infants only, this is not the training for you.  Please use the MERIT portal to search for the early learning training opportunities.

Upon registration on this site, our staff will email you with your unique login information to the Online Training Portal and links to the online learning course within 7 days.

Upon successful completion of each course, you will be issued a certificate of completion, and your training record will be updated in MERIT in a matter of weeks.


If you have any questions about how the online learning course will work, please contact training@schoolsoutwashington.org
