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.
