Temporary Changes to Au Pair Education Requirement Due to COVID-19

Due to COVID-19, Au Pair in America has approved online classes from accredited schools when the class begins before May 30th. Schools must still be accredited and au pairs must still produce certificates or other acceptable documentation confirming completion of the class.

If in doubt, ask your counselor to check if the school is accredited. All class hours must be completed by the end of your 11th month in the program if you wish to extend.

Weekend/U.S. Culture/Travel Courses

Online Class Websites – These platforms will list online courses all over the country. These courses come from a variety of sources and some are not accredited. You must be sure you are selecting a course that is from an accredited university.

*This class would be great for au pairs who have already taken or plan to take a PGCC Transition ESL class when things go back to normal. Those classes usually earn 50-60 hours, so this could be enough to complete your education requirement, in combination with one of those classes.
