What is FosterParentCollege.com?

http://www.fosterparentcollege.com/ is an on-line training program for foster, adoptive, kinship, and birth families. These interactive courses provide valuable information, insights, and advice from experts on dealing with serious child behavior problems.

There are two types of on-line courses that are available:
  1. Instructor Led - these courses are more in-depth and allows for interaction between on-line participants and the instructor. The length of this course is several hours over the period of 3 weeks. Completion of this course is worth (six) training hours. During these workshops participants will use a discussion board and at the end they will complete a questionnaire, complete assigned exercises and email their completed assignment. (Not all counties can participate in this course)
  2. Self-Directed - these courses are focused on a specific behavioral problem or emotional disorder. Self-Directed means that participants can complete the activities at their own pace as long as it is completed within 30 days. The length of a session will take about two hours and will provide two hours of training credit. The discussion board is optional in this course.
