Health & Safety training:
You will need to obtain your Health & Safety training, however, you must ensure that their curriculum is approved by Ohio Department of Job & Family Services for Type B Home Child Care Providers. Health & Safety training is at your own expense and you must obtain a JFS 01924 "Inservice Training for Type B Home Child Care Provider" form from the trainer.
