Am I required to attend special training?
Yes, applicants are required to complete 27 hours of pre-service training prior to becoming licensed foster parents. An additional eight hours of post-service training is required every year thereafter. These classes are offered at no cost.

In addition, foster parents are required to have age appropriate CPR and First Aid certification.
