Foster Parent Training Calendar

Sign Up for a Foster Parent Training

If, after attending an information session, you feel that foster parenting is the right fit for you, then please look below to find a foster parent training nearest you. Simply click on the plus sign next to your nearest office location and a list will appear of all the upcoming training dates.

All trainings are free and classes are offered to all interested foster and adoptive parents. We request please no children at these trainings so you can best engage with the trainer and get all your questions answered. If you are unable to attend a training session please contact us to find out when the next one is scheduled.

The Villages requires 20 hours of pre-service training before you can become licensed as a foster parent. Resource and Adoptive Parent Training (RAPT)  is required by the Department of Child Services and the State of Indiana. The specific required trainings are:

 

  • RAPT I – Introduction to DCS
  • RAPT II – Child Abuse & Neglect (some regions offer this training online; please check with your local office)
  • RAPT III – Attachment, Discipline, & Effects of Caregiving on the Family Overview
  • Trauma-Informed Care (TIC)
  • Tools to Manage Behaviors (TMB)
  • Sexual Abuse (SA)

Once you find a training that interests you, please call your local office to let us know to expect you or register at the link in the event listing.

Don’t hesitate to contact us with further questions. We can’t wait to have you involved!

Please click on the location nearest you to find the next foster parent training. Online and phone registration are available for each office. We look forward to seeing you!
