Caregiver Training Model
The Alliance for Child Welfare Excellence provides training for Foster Parents, Adoptive Parents and Relative Caregivers throughout the state of Washington.
*The Caregiver Continuing Education requirement may be met by one or both parties on a license, in any combination. That is, one parent on a two-parent license may complete all required training hours or two people on a two-parent license may each complete part of the required hours as long as the total number of hours in the household meets the requirement.
If a licensed foster home exceeds the required training hours during any licensing period, they may carry-over up to twelve hours into the next licensing period.
Foster homes taking placement of Sexually Aggressive Youth or Physically Assaultive/Aggressive Youth (SAY/PAAY) youth as defined in RCW 74.13.075 must complete either the SAY/PAAY online or in-person training prior to the child being placed, or within 30 days of placement. Both caregivers in the home are required to complete this training.
