Adoption Preparation Classes

These classes focus on certain aspects of adoption issues, but most of them are also appropriate to use for ongoing training for all foster parents. You are welcome to take any of them by registering at the 800# where you will receive information about locations. Be aware that some are very specific such as the infertility class which is for parents experiencing infertility issues and the kinship class which is for those people planning to adopt a relative’s child.

Clases de Preparacion para Adopcion

Estas clases se enfocan en ciertos aspectos de cuestiones de adopción, pero la mayoría de ellas también califican para cumplir con las horas de entrenamiento requeridas para todos los padres de crianza. Usted es bienvenido a tomar cualquiera de ellas, registrándose en el #800 donde recibirá información sobre las ubicaciones. Tenga en cuenta que algunas clases son muy específicas como la clase de infertilidad que es para los padres que están experimentando problemas de infertilidad y la clase de parentesco que es para aquellas personas que planean adoptar a un niño de un pariente.

Please Note: Certificates are e-mailed as PDF documents 2 weeks after taking the class.
