Foundation Foster Parent Training
This training is designed to develop your knowledge and skills as a foster parent. It is a companion piece to the Pre-Placement Training and expands on the concepts introduced there. It is expected that foster parents have completed Pre-Placement Training before attending Foundation Training.

Foundation Foster Parent training totals 30 hours, split into ten 3-hour sessions. Attending each module listed below meets the required 30 hours. Note, module 4 consists of two sessions. Both parts 4a and 4b are required. Each module is available in various locations. Choose the option that works best for you.

Fee: there is no cost for county or tribal licensed foster parents to attend foster parent foundation training sessions. For those licesned by private foster care agencies there is a $50 per session fee.
