In-Service Training Opportunities- free!

Attached you will find the Winter/Spring/Summer 2015 Child Welfare In-Service Training catalog listing programs that are offered FREE of charge to private agencies that contract with the Department of Human Services to provide child welfare services, as well as child welfare workers employed by DHS. 


All of these trainings are DHS approved for meeting the in-service training hour requirements set forth in the MSA requiring all caseworkers to receive a minimum of at least 32 hours of in-service training hours annually. Training participants may also earn CE hours.


Registration to attend each course will be handled through the hosting university, and in order to record in-service training hours with the Department, your training facility coordinator must log the training hours into the DHS learning management system. 


Please let me know if you have any questions about these courses- and remember to register soon, as courses will fill up quickly!
