Importance of Training
Training is essential to stimulating a positive, successful foster care provider experience. The training is designed to provide tools and knowledge foster care providers need to help meet the needs of children or adults in their care. The Scott County Foster Care Program staff is dedicated to helping you receive the training you need when you need it.
Child foster care providers are required to complete a minimum of 12 hours of training annually. Some of the trainings are free and some of the trainings have a fee. For those classes that require payment, reimbursement is possible. Scott County will reimburse foster care providers for half of your training costs, provided your attendance is pre-approved by your licensor. Just submit your (1) Certificate of Attendance and (2) your receipt of payment for the training. Please contact your licensor if you have any questions.
