Center for Improvement of Child and Family Services - Child Welfare Partnership


The Caregiver Training Unit


The Caregiver Training Unit is an essential component of keeping children safe in the State of Oregon. They provide, on a daily basis, the care and support necessary for children served by child welfare. Oregon has been innovative in its commitment to providing vital on-going training for its caregivers.


The Caregiver Training Program is designed to develop and deliver training for foster parents, relative care providers, and adoptive parents. This training is created to provide caregivers with skills and knowledge that will enhance their ability to care for children in state custody and to assist them in obtaining post-certification training hours required by Oregon Administrative Rules .


Training is provided statewide both in the classroom and by distance delivery with a variety of topics available. In order to view upcoming trainings scheduled in your area, and throughout the state, please use the menu above.

Oregon Foster Youth Connection created a video to help child welfare staff, substitute caregivers, and children and young adults in foster care understand and implement recent changes in law concerning the 'Reasonable and Prudent Parent Standard'. See it at the links below:
