Foster Parent Core Training 12-hour course

Foster Parent Core Training meets the pre-certification training requirements set by Colorado rules and regulations for licensure to operate a Family Foster Care Home. This training provides introductory level information needed to successfully become a foster/kinship/adoptive parent. Participants can expect to learn about the legal process, including how children and families become involved with the child welfare system and the services provided to support the family unit. Participants will also gain an understanding of how to work alongside child welfare agencies and a family of origin while providing a nurturing and therapeutic environment to offset the impact of maltreatment on children and youth in the foster care system. Additional topics covered in the training include: child abuse and neglect, child development, discipline, creating permanency for children and youth, cultural considerations, and foster/kinship/adoptive family preparation.
