SIDS Training has a New Title

Beginning on December 1, 2023, the SIDS training will have a new name: North Dakota Safe Sleep.

Approximately 3,400 infants die suddenly and unexpectedly in the U.S. each year. The North Dakota Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) requires that everyone who cares for infants in a licensed child care setting must complete an annual training for safe sleep. The training covers the similar material as the previous SIDS training. The safe sleep training provides information on safe sleep practices and reducing the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).

In the last year, the SIDS training was completed 7011 times by Registry participants. Not all safe sleep trainings meet the HHS requirement. The HHS Early Childhood Division course, North Dakota Safe Sleep, is Registry approved and meets licensing requirements.
