Wisconsin Child Welfare Professional Development System

DCF 56 Training

WCWPDS partners with the Wisconsin Department of Children and Families (DCF) to offer training that focuses on your role as a licensor, your role overseeing foster parent compliance to Chapter 56 Administrative Code, and your role in screening and assessing prospective foster families. DCF 56 training is available to new licensors via the DCF 56 Training: New Licensors course and to experienced licensors via the DCF 56-related topic sessions at the Statewide Foster Care Coordinator Meetings and the DCF 56 webinars offered by Foster Care and Adoption Resource Center.
