Foster Parent Ongoing Training

The online Priceless Parenting classes are approved by the Washington State Department of Social & Health Services (DSHS) for the ongoing foster parent training requirement. Completing one course will result in 6 hours in Child Guidance. These 6 hours can be used as part of the 36 hours of ongoing training required during each three year licensing period.

Can I use this training even though I am a foster parent outside of Washington State?

Please contact your State Foster Parent Association to determine if they will give you credit for this course. The National Foster Parent Association has contact information for most state’s Foster Parent Associations.
