Preplacement Training

The Pre-Placement training is now a State of Wisconsin mandated training that is required of all foster parents before they are able to receive a child in their home for the provision of foster care.

There are two steps to completing Pre-Placement Training. The first is to complete an online training that will take roughly six hours. The second is to attend a follow up session at the Department to review what you learned online and to provide you with more specific information about working with our county as well as answer any questions you have. This session will be approximately 2.5  hours. This online training can be found at http://wcwpds.wisc.edu/foster-parent-training 

Pre-Placement training is divided into five modules that can be completed at your own pace.  There will be a certificate at the end of each module for you to print or email to your coordinator.  If you are unable to complete the online training in your home, please let your coordinator know so that other arrangements can be made.  You can complete as a couple and print one certificate with both names. 

 

The  follow up session will be offered several times throughout the year.  Your coordinator will let you know when a class is scheduled so that you can make arrangements to attend.  If you are unable to attend the follow up session, please speak to your coordinator, so that other arrangements can be made.
