The three part orientation series and five part one plan series works in tandem with other orientation activities planned for newly hired CIS providers or for community partners. It should take about two hours to complete all modules. CIS professionals should complete the quizzes at the end of each module and print the results as a record of one of the professional development activities for the year. The training will not count towards training hours for child care licensing purposes.
