Free Online CEASE Training

Special thanks to the Julius B. Richmond Center of Excellence
at the American Academy of Pediatrics for funding
the development of the CEASE online training module.


We are offering a free online CEASE training to inpatient and outpatient sites all over California.  The training takes about 25 minutes to complete. To access the training, click here.

The training is available to any providers (ie MDs, NPs and PAs) serving children – including pediatricians, family practices, pediatric dentists, etc. Training your clinic in CEASE is quick and easy, and you can even get 0.5 CME/CEU!  Thanks to First 5 California, the training and CME/CEUs are free for you!


This training has 2 parts that take a total of one hour:

  • The first part is an online training module that participants complete by themselves on a computer (25 minutes)
  • The second part is a meeting facilitated by a motivated staff member of your clinic to discuss implementation of the CEASE program (35 minutes) in which your team fills out a CEASE workplan

Upon completion of the online training and the implementation meeting, you can:
