All Bright Minds Training courses are approved by Kentucky ECE-TRIS (Early Care and Education Training Records Information System) and approved as clock hours for those who work in child care.  Our courses are on the ECE-TRIS calendar and your training hours will be reported within ten days of successful completion of any course.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  In the state of Kentucky, you are not permitted to retake a course that you have previously taken unless five years have passed.  If you choose to purchase and repeat a course in less than five years, you will NOT receive credit hours on ECE TRIS.  If you have any questions about whether or not you have taken one of our courses previously, check your student profile.  All courses you have taken will be listed there.  If we can help in any way, email Connie at
