Sign Up for a Foster Parent Training

If, after attending an information session, you feel foster parenting is right for you, the next step is pre-service training, offered by The Villages, free of charge.

The Villages requires 20 hours of pre-service training to become licensed as a foster parent, which includes Resource and Adoptive Parent Training (RAPT). RAPT is required by the Department of Child Services (DCS) and the State of Indiana and includes the following:

  • RAPT I – Introduction to DCS
  • RAPT II – Child Abuse and Neglect
  • RAPT III – Attachment, Discipline, and Effects of Caregiving on the Family
  • Trauma-Informed Care I (TIC)
  • Understanding & Managing Challenging Behaviors (UMB)
  • Sexual Abuse 101 & 201 (SA)

All foster parent trainings are virtual. We recommend you schedule your virtual trainings with your local office. If your schedule does not allow, you can attend virtual trainings with another office listed below. If you would like to schedule an in-person training, please contact your local office. 

Register for the session(s) you would like to attend by completing the form below.
