To participate, fathers must first contact an Extension family and child development agent.  Men completing the course receive a free certificate of completion. For $10, they can also receive Continuing Education Credits (CEUs). This will provide a permanent record of completing the course.  For more information on how you can participate, contact the Extension regional family and child development agent serving your county.
