If you’re pursuing a home study, we recommend the Domestic Infant Package, but we encourage you to talk with your home study provider about their specific education requirements & recommendations.

When you complete a course, you’ll be issued a certificate of completion that you can upload to your home study dashboard. If you're adopting with a second parent, check with your home study provider on whether you can complete courses together or if you need to take them individually.
