Creating a Family does not warrant or guarantee that the each state will accept our courses as evidence of compliance with training requirements. We have done our best to create courses that we believe will prepare parents and staff for domestic, intercountry, and foster care adoption as required by these states.
Please visit the state page to review the requirements and the content we suggest. If you have been told to include training on other requirements for your adoptions, please contact us and we can suggest additional courses to cover those content topics.
For your convenience only, we have included the content topics that we believe our courses can be used to achieve at least partial compliance with the requirements; however, adoption service providers must decide for themselves. Our inclusion of these content topics implies that we believe that the course addresses some of the topics in the specified regulatory section and does not imply that the course can fulfill that regulation.
For state specific information, go to the Child Welfare Information Gateway State Search site to find information on the your state's requirements on background checks, consent to adoption, home study requirements, post-adoption contact agreements, adoption expense regulations, use of advertising, and who may adopt or place a child for adoption.
