Purchase a PedFACTs Participant Manual and Access Code: Each facility should purchase at least one copy of the PedFACTs Participant Manual. The manual costs $18.95 and includes one access code. Each person must have an access code to take the course. Separate access codes cost $5.95. They are valid for one year. The fee for the access code covers the online registration, online evaluation and Course Completion Certificate. It is in addition to any instructor fee set by the PedFACTs instructor, or by an organization such as a Regional Key that provides the instructor. Purchase the PedFACTs manuals and separate access codes on the Jones and Bartlett Learning (J&B) website or call J&B at 800-832-0034. To locate the course materials on the J&B website, enter PedFACTs in the search box.
Take the Pretest: Go to the PedFACTs website. Each person must take the online PedFACTs pretest. Redeem the access code found in the front of each PedFACTs Participant Manual or one that you purchased separately. Create a user name and password. Take the pretest, and then print the Pretest Certificate. Bring the Pretest Certificate to the in-person PedFACTs workshop for the 4-hour all in-person or the 2-hour hybrid course. Users of the hybrid course must bring their Final Examination Certificate to show successful completion of the online component.
After successful completion of either the 4 hour or the hybrid PedFACTs course, students will receive a PedFACTs Course Completion Certificate. It will be sent to the email address the student provided when registering at the PedFACTs website. PedFACTs no longer provides wallet cards. The AAP Course Completion Certificate states it is valid for two years. Pennsylvania received permission from the AAP to allow a 3 year renewal period to be valid, the maximum allowed for facility persons according to Pennsylvania’s child care regulations.
