2019 Foster Parent Conference
Highlights from this year's conference!
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.
If you are interested in becoming a foster parent, please visit Tennessee Fosters for more details. Potential foster parents are required to complete pre-approval training. Learn more about training requirements and view upcoming training groups.
If you are already a DCS Foster Parent, please see below for information and helpful training links just for you.
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.
