SCEIs online modules are free and available to BCW service providers and to parents of children currently in the BCW program. Please visit the Database Registration page for the required registration process.

Training modules are presented at two levels. (See below for a description of each module). DPH policy states that all personnel who are Service Coordinators or who deliver or supervise special instruction must complete the required SCEIs modules within six months of their enrollment with the Babies Can’t Wait Program (enrollment is either employment or contracting).

To receive a certificate of completion, participants must complete all online module requirements.

NOTE:  The PRAXIS II ® test is offered for Level II professionals as an alternative to completing the required SCEIs workshop modules.

Level I modules are for those who do not hold a bachelor’s degree in an early intervention discipline. These may include: Child Care Practitioners, EI Paraprofessionals or parents of a child currently in BCW.

Level II modules are for those who hold at least a bachelor’s degree in an early intervention discipline such as: Special Education or Early Childhood Education, Psychology, Nutrition, Nursing, Social Work or Therapists (OT, PT, Speech or Audiology).  This is the required level for all other EI personnel required to complete the SCEIs modules.  This includes Service Coordinators, Early Interventionists, Early Intervention Specialists and Non-licensed Early Interventionists as Family Trainers.
