Joyful Living Services is giving a Certified Children’s Health Online Course.
This course contains 16 lessons on the web. The files are in PDF format and are ready to download. You will receive a certificate at the end of this course. There is homework with each session and there is a test at the end of the course. The homework and test will be graded as you turn them in. They will need to be mailed or e-mailed to us. This course is on your own time so you can complete the lessons at your own pace. If you are going on vacation, are ill, or don’t have the time every week to read the lesson and complete the homework you will not be penalized.
