Foster Parent College provides innovative online training for foster parents and adoptive and kinship caregivers. Our research-based classes are taught by nationally recognized experts in parenting, pediatrics, social work, psychiatry, psychology and education. The 24 online classes contain general parenting information, like Positive Parenting 1, 2 and 3, plus there are topic-specific courses as well, such as Anger Outbursts, Child Abuse and Neglect, Children with Autism, and more. Most classes cost $8 per person and are available 24/7. FPC credits are accepted by over 1,000 agencies in the USA, Canada, the UK and Australia.
A call to child protective services to report abuse or neglect triggers a series of events, and leads to the formation of a team of people, working toward the goal of a safe and permanent home for every child.
The state of Indiana has contracted with FosterParentCollege.com to provide online training to its 3,000+ foster and adoptive parents. This is the result of a rfp and the contract extends through 2013.
