“What I really like about Ounce trainings is that for someone who has never done home visiting before, there is a training for that. When I hired a new home visitor who had experience working with children and families on the education side, Achieve OnDemand trainings helped her acclimate to the role of home visitor.
It is a perfect way to learn in the midst of their busy schedules. They can carve out time in their own way which will be helpful to them to complete the training in whatever way works best for them.”
Tameka Caldwell, Home-Based Program Manager, Childcare Group, Plano, Texas

Hear what state leaders are saying about Achieve OnDemand.
“As the Illinois MIECHV Project Director, I see one of the key benefits [of Achieve OnDemand] as serving as a support for rural communities whose programs require significant travel to training sites. Achieve on Demand allows rural home visitors to attend trainings and not use excessive time and money traveling. This is so important in the current financial climate.
The interactive components of Achieve OnDemand also allows workers to form relationships and feel part of a classroom and a learning community. Our home visitors receive consistent, high quality professional development. I would recommend Achieve OnDemand to any home visiting program.” (Project Director, Strong Foundations Partnership, Governor’s Office of Early Childhood Development, Illinois)
“As the training provider for the Healthy Families Massachusetts statewide system, we are using the Achieve OnDemand courses to enhance our training modalities for home visiting staff and provide them high quality ongoing professional growth and development opportunities in a flexible, online format.” (Healthy Families Training Coordinator, The Children’s Trust, Massachusetts)
