Congratulations on your accreditation as a Caring Dads professional! You are joining a leading, international network of clinicians working in the fields of domestic and gendered violence. After a simple registration process, you will soon have access to our online Professional Portal where you can communicate and share your experiences with other Caring Dads professionals, and access resources directly from the program's developers. As an accredited Caring Dads professional you will also receive ongoing program updates, regular newsletters and full participation in all the Caring Dads Program Evaluation Research being conducted at the University of Toronto, as well as through independent evaluation bodies around the world. Please follow the steps below to pay your first annual Licensing Fee and sign up to our database.
1. Registration as a Caring Dads Professional involves paying your annual license fees. License fees for Facilitators are $100 CAD, while the fees for Trainers are $250 CAD. Facilitators and Trainers in select countries with weaker exchange rates are eligible for discounts on these fees. Your trainer will have explained this to you, but if you have any questions please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
We accept payments via both Stripe & PayPal. Stripe allows you to pay with any major debit or credit card in any country, and in over 135 currencies. You can pay using Visa (credit and debit cards), MasterCard (credit and debit cards), and American Express without creating or logging into a separate account. You may also use Apple Pay when checking out on a supported device. Caring Dads also accepts payments through PayPal, for which you will have to register for an account. PayPal’s broad international support makes it a great option for countries where Stripe isn’t yet available or where credit card use is less common. The choice is yours! Please note that as part of our commitment to the environment, Caring Dads only accepts online payment methods. You can learn more about the valuable impact of this decision here.
2. To begin the process, please select your accreditation level below. Fill in the form that loads after your selection and hit submit. You're done!
3. Please note that all memberships (i.e. License Fees) are set to auto-renew. You can change this setting in your Account page.
4. Finally, please remember that your annual License Fee includes your provision for one Caring Dads group program or Facilitator Training per year. Additional group programs or Facilitator Trainings require the payment of additional license fees to cover ongoing Program Evaluation Research, course materials and the printing of certificates. We trust our accredited professionals to complete their reporting after the completion of each group they facilitate or training event they conclude. Once you have completed your reporting functions, download links for materials and certificates are emailed to you within 24 hours.
