The staff at Kids Central receives training through a variety of venues. Kids Central’s training team maintains many trainer certifications including, but not limited to: Child Welfare, Family Team Conferencing, Family Centered Practice, Search Institute’s 40 Developmental Assets, Safety Methodology, Adoption Competency, Non-Abusive Physical and Psychological Intervention, Supervising for Excellence, and Myers-Briggs. These professional certifications allow for a vast variety of in-service training opportunities. In-service training opportunities are often contracted by local, state, and national experts.
Kids Central provides Pre-Service training to all child welfare professionals. Trainer/Job Coaches present eight weeks of classroom training, followed by intensive field training based on a professional development training plan to assist the new child welfare professional in their goal to achieve individual certification in their job class.
I see Pre-service training on the calendar, what does that mean?
Pre-service training is required for all new child welfare professionals. These trainings are required for certification. Contracted providers register new employees to attend.
