Foundations Training

You may attend Foundations in any County, but must complete all classes. If you miss one, you can take a class in a different county or work with your certifier to make a plan to gain the content from the course. To get information for training in other counties than the ones listed, please contact Brittany Stout at (503) 366-8330 or brittany.stout@state.or.us. Foundations is a series of 8 Sessions and you must complete Session 1 before continuing on to the other sessions. Session 1 provides an overview to Child Welfare and will help you with the content in the rest of the sessions.
