As a foster parent, you are required to renew your license each year, before it expires. It’s essential to keep your license up-to-date. A lapsed license could lead to a disruption for the children in foster care in your home. For those who have re-licensed before, the process has changed. In and effort to make the licensing process easier for families, we are now using Binti software. With Binti, families can easily apply online or with the mobile-friendly app with simple document uploads and e-signatures.
- 16 hours of in-service training are required for couples (with each person having at least 4 hours). 12 hours of in-service training are required for single providers. All providers are required to have at least 4 of their training hours as in-person training. (See Infographic)
- Your training hours should be tracked in UFC Training. If you have attended training outside of Utah Foster Care, please get those hours approved by your RFC, and, once approved, send certificate to your regional trainer to be tracked with your other hours.
After OL receives all of your completed renewal paperwork, a licensor will call you to set up an appointment to do a re-check of your home. Once that is completed, an updated license will be granted and mailed to you.
We highly recommend getting in-service hours throughout the year. Not only will you receive helpful and supportive information during your parenting experience, you won’t need to panic during the last month trying to find suitable training to meet the required renewal hours!
