SIDS Training Course

The North Dakota Department of Human Services (DHS) requires that all individuals who work in a licensed child care setting complete an annual training in Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). Be aware that not all SIDS training courses meet the DHS requirement. By taking the Child Care Aware® course “SIDS(ONLINE)”, it is assured that you will be in compliance with licensing requirements. The Guidelines for SIDS Approval (PDF, 151.44 KB) describe what must be included in a SIDS course to be accepted for licensing.
