Is training credit (Continuing Education) available to foster parents?

Yes! Training certificates will be made available whether you attend in person in Chicago, attend a simulcast site, or watch from your home. You will be given a training certificate that will be found at the back of your program guide. It will be the registrant’s responsibility to complete the training certificate with the sessions you attended and submit that paperwork to your licensing worker for approval. 

Unfortunately, we are not able to guarantee that each state or licensing agency will grant training credit. We recommend that you submit the sessions you are interested in attending to your licensing worker for pre-approval. Illinois is pre-approved.
