    Foster Parent Training

    Edison E-Learning Management System

    The Office of Training and Professional Development is excited to announce that foster parents will soon be able to track their training records in real time using Edison, the state's electronic learning management system. FPS Workers are currently working with families to ensure their information has been submitted for account creation in Edison. Statewide rollout for DCS foster parents is expected to be complete by July 2019.

    Medication Administration Refresher

    Parents who have been fostering for 2 years or more now have the option to complete the biennial requirement for Medication Administration Refresher training via live webinar. View the schedule of upcoming offerings and register here.

    Working with the Education System

    Click HERE to complete the training! This is a one-time requirement, mandatory within the first year of fostering. If you have completed a previous version of this course (CBT or classroom), you do NOT need to take the updated training.

    The Office of Training and Professional Development offers learning opportunities to assist current adoptive, foster, and kinship parents in support their efforts to provide a safe, nurturing, loving environment for the children in their care.

    We also provide pre-approval training for prospective foster parents, in partnership with Harmony Family Center and New Vision, Inc.
