Online Foster Parent Training

Foster parents can receive training credit by completing any of the courses listed in the tables below. DCS foster parents are encouraged to complete training in our new learning management system, DCS Brightspace. If you would like to complete one of the trainings listed below that has not been added to the new LMS, please do so using the links provided. Training records will be added to user profiles in Brightspace in January 2024, and the catalog of trainings available to complete in Brightspace will continue to grow.

If you do not have a DCS Brightspace account or encounter difficulty, you may also view the courses by clicking the links below. View the videos and other material and submit the form for each class to receive credit.  Submit a separate form for each person to receive a certificate for each training.

In the table below, use the arrows in each column heading to sort by value. Sort the Required, Trauma, and Therapeutic columns to bring trainings that fulfill these requirements to the top of the list. You may also use the search bar below to search for trainings by keyword.
