Required Adoption Training & Approved Trainers

Revised April 2019

1. Front-line Staff and Client Advocates—2-Hour Adoption Training must be completed at any time during each calendar year. A copy of the current Annual Certification of Training is a required document in the Application and Renewal process.

2. Executive Director and/or Client Services Director—2-Hour Adoption Training is mandatory only for new directors who have not previously completed the training in the past two years. Already-trained directors are always welcome to attend if they wish. All directors are to meet with the adoption trainer for a brief appointment when she trains their front-line personnel each year.

3. Your center is responsible to schedule training annually with one of the approved Adoption Training programs listed below. Training any time this year qualifies your center for renewal for next year. Please plan ahead to allow plenty of time for them to accommodate your need to have the Certification before the renewal deadline each December.
