Will this train me to code the SSP?

This course will allow people to properly conduct the Ainsworth procedure and is designed to train people to score the three basic Ainsworth categories: A, B, and C. 

There is separate training for scoring the newer disorganized category. You may contact Elizabeth Carlson (carls032@umn.edu) with regard to that training.

How do I complete it?
At the end of the course, there is a 50-question quiz that can be completed at your own pace. You need to score 80% or higher on the quiz to pass. You will also be required to submit five short homework assignments and an online evaluation. The homework assignment, quiz, and evaluation will be accessed online through the course website.

When I’m done, how do I get my credit?
