In order to remain licensed, foster parents need 12 hours of on-going education each year. We call this “in-service training” and it’s available from a variety of sources: Utah Foster Care (UFC) training staff, local Clusters, and from a handful of approved outside providers.
In addition to in-services classes you may take in-person, we also offer a growing library of live and recorded web-based classes, called “webinars“.
A listing of up-coming in-service trainings and webinars is available in the current FosterRoster (PDF), or as a standalone exerpt (PDF). Additionally, training opportunities are frequently announced in on Facebook.
Also, an in-service tracking sheet (among other helpful forms) is available for download.
