Adoption, Foster, and Kinship Parent Training

Founded in 1986, the Ohio Child Welfare Training Program (OCWTP) is a comprehensive, competency-based inservice training system for staff, managers, and resource families in Ohio’s 88 county Public Children Services Agencies.

Designed as a state/county, public/private collaboration, the OCWTP develops and provides an array of training activities to promote mastery of the complex knowledge and skills needed to assure protection and permanence for Ohio’s abused and neglected children. The OCWTP Central Steering Committee conducts strategic and operational planning, program management, and oversight for all OCWTP initiatives and activities. Training is provided by highly skilled and certified trainers through a regionally organized delivery system.
