Foster home Certification and Special Evaluation Training Online Registration
For certification workers and supervisors employed by contracted private agencies, there is no longer a need to send transcripts or resumes to the qualifications email box (MDHHSStaffQualifications@michigan.gov). Compliance with these revised education and experience requirements will be monitored through DCWL reviews. If you have a question regarding a potential new hire, please contact your DCWL consultant for consideration of a variance.
All staff and supervisors who complete ANY functions related to the licensure of foster homes must attend and pass the five-day class on certification and special evaluations for foster homes. The class is conducted by DCWL consultants.
Direct service staff is to attend the class within six months of being assigned to any certification or special evaluation function (R 400.12305, CPA Rules).
Supervisors who have not attended certification and special evaluation training are required to attend the five-day certification and special evaluation training prior to supervising the certification of foster homes.
All training is from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the location(s) listed below. Confirmation of approval or denial will be sent via email. If you need to make any adjustments after you submit this registration, contact BCAL-CWL-Division@michigan.gov.
