Application/Renewal Process

All Child, Dependent Adult and Combination training must be approved by the Iowa Department of Public Health.  If you have training you would like considered email the material to karin.ford@idph.iowa.gov  If the material meets minimum requirements an approval/provider number will be assigned.  This must be renewed every 3 years. 

Certificates are not required by law but are good practice to provide.  The certificate needs to include the name of the course, the approval/provider number, (the training number if it does not belong to you), the number of hours of the training, and is valid for 5 years.
