Being an FCC Provider
This is more than being a “babysitter”. You are a
professionally trained child/youth caregiver in a
continuously growing, high demand career field.
As a business owner, you will experience the
challenges and rewards of being self-employed
while receiving support and guidance by the
FCC Office with 48th Force Support Squadron.
The Basic Requirements To
Become An FCC Provider:
• Be 18 years of age or older
• Be an Active Duty or retired
military dependent
• Speak, read and write English
• Live in the military community
• Attend 36 hours of orientation
• Have a high school diploma or equivalent
• Proof of immunizations
• Certification in FA/CPR Infant/Child
Getting Started
If you meet these basic requirements, then you can
begin your career as an FCC Provider. The FCC
office will guide you through the licensing process
and assist you with establishing your business. All
training requirements mandated by Air Force
Instruction 34-276 for FCC Providers will be
provided prior to the home being licensed. Training
will include child abuse identification and reporting,
appropriate guidance and discipline techniques,
food handlers, medication administration, CPR and
first aid, FCC business administration, basic child
development and learning environments, and safety,
health and fire regulations. In addition, you will
complete 15 specialized modules that will educate
you on everything from home safety and health
to setting up your environment during your first 18
months of license.
