About Scott County Foster Care Training
Foster Care provider training is separated into 3 main categories:
Annual Training Requirements
Adult Foster Care
Adult foster care providers with 0-5 years of licensure or experience must complete 12 hours of annual training. Adult foster care providers the 6 or more years of licensure or experience must complete 6 hours of annual training.
Child Foster Care
Child foster care providers are required to complete a minimum of 12 hours of training annually. Some of the trainings are free and some of the trainings have a fee. For those classes that require payment, reimbursement is possible. Scott County will reimburse foster care providers for half of your training costs, provided your attendance is pre-approved by your licensor. Just submit your (1) Certificate of Attendance and (2) your receipt of payment for the training. Please contact your licensor if you have any questions.
