BCCD (PIQA) Program Integrity & Quality Assurance CCMS Training Roadmap

This training curriculum is designed for the Bureau of Child Care & Development Program Integrity & Quality Assurance (PIQA) team.

Checkpoint #1 - CCMS Web-Based Training

CCMS web-based training will introduce you to CCMS functionality and concepts. It will give you a basic understanding of how to navigate and find information in CCMS.  Web-based trainings allow participants to access self-paced learning that can be completed at their work computers.  Courses are designed with narrated slides, learning activities, and evaluations to assess learning.  By accessing web-based training, participants can learn new information in between scheduled instructor-led training or allow existing users to refresh their knowledge.

The web-based courses you should take are listed below. You can also record your final exam scores here:

Checkpoint #3 - CCMS Training Webinars

Post-classroom training webinars will help reinforce the skills you learned in the web-based training. You will view system demonstrations and ask questions to a live instructor.
