It is that time of year again. Yes, training hours for foster care will be due at the end of the month. With our busy and crazy households you sometimes overlook your last few hours needed. Maybe, your just like me and wait until the last minute. I will give you a few ideas and web sites to check out. Please be sure and check with your agency to see if the training will count towards your needed hours. Reading books and doing a report on it is an idea. If your agency allows this they may have a form to fill out, so check with them.
This foster care web page (above) offers a 3 credit hours on “Substance Abuse”. You will read serval pages on the topic and then answer questions. A prompt will appear for you to type you name as you want it to appear on the certificate of participation. You can then print the certificate to present to your agency. This is FREE!!!
You will need an email account for this web page (above). You will have to register to take their training. They offer training in the areas of bio families, court system, education, mental health, special needs children, and youth transition to adulthood. Most of the training is for a 1 credit hour. There are a few that are 2 or 3 credit hours. You will read the infortation and take a quiz. You can print your quiz results that states “Passed” and the training will be kept in your grade book. This is FREE!!!
This site (above) you will pay for a annual membership fee. Sorry, I have not used them, so I help more.
This site (above) covers a lot of different areas of training for foster parents. You will read the materials and then take a quiz. You can then download your certificate. I have used this site before and it is pretty easy, not too expensive.
I hope this information will help you in your time crunch. Best of luck and happy reading.
