Description

This is a conference-style training event with two virtual sessions on Friday, August 26, 2022 (10:00 am – 12:15 pm EDT & 1:00 pm – 3:15 pm EDT), and in-person sessions on Saturday, August 27, 2022, from 11:00 am – 8:00 pm EDT.  Conference Check-in for Saturday opens at 9:30 am EDT.  This event will provide DCBS and PCP Medically Complex Foster/Adoptive Parents the opportunity to obtain 12 hours of the ongoing training needed for recertification.

At Saturday’s in-person training sessions, participants will have a variety of topics in a breakout session to allow them the opportunity to attend the training sessions most relevant to the needs of the child in their care. Registration for the breakout sessions will be separate and will open by August 1.  Advanced registration is required for the breakout sessions.  Further details regarding the breakout sessions will be sent at a later date along with the Zoom registration links for Friday’s virtual training.

General training sessions will also be held on Saturday and are conducted through the meals. Therefore, attendance at meals is required to receive full training credit. All 12 hours of training must be completed by attending both Friday’s virtual sessions and Saturday’s in-person sessions,

Foster/Adoptive Parents must be in an approved Medically Complex Foster Home in order to attend.

Special Information for Saturday Sessions:

While children are welcome at the venue, children cannot be allowed in the training. This includes the lunch and dinner is served. Please make sure your children have a care provider with them at all times, and that you have informed your worker/agency of lodging needs for children and care providers. Space will be provided for children and their care providers to hang out until they are able to check-in to their room.

Cell phones are allowed in training sessions, but you are asked to keep them on “silent”, and if you must take a call, please step out of the room.

Training participants with a private agency will be required to pay $28.00 through the LMS system for meals ($10.00 for lunch & $18.00 for dinner), which is provided at the event and is part of the training. Private agency participants are also responsible for their lodging expenses, which are $99.00 plus tax for Saturday night, August 27, 2022.
