The National Program for Playground Safety has several interactive online courses covering a variety of topics on developing and maintaining safe and appropriate outdoor play environments for children. Courses are run through the University of Northern Iowa’s online learning system and can be taken on your own time at your own pace. CEUs are available for some of the courses.
Upon completion of all course requirements participants will receive a certificate from our national organization. Our courses have been approved for training credit by multiple state licensing agencies. Please contact your licensing agency with any questions on training credit approval specific to your state.
