Micro-Learning Courses

We call them “Tiny Training Bytes” -- bite sizes of training to earn training hours a bit at a time!

  • Take a “byte” and watch the video or read the class!
  • Alaska licensed foster parents can earn 1.0 hour (for written courses) or .5 hour of training credit (micro-training video)of credit toward required training hours by filling out the questionnaire at the end of the course and submitting to ACRF.
