Service Description North Carolina’s child welfare training system is delivered to county child welfare staff that addresses the knowledge and skills needed to complete their daily  tasks in the areas of child protective services, permanency planning, on-going child welfare services, foster home licensing, and adoption.  Training is delivered in-person in classroom settings and virtually through self-paced modules, live and recorded webinars. Each level of training serves as a foundation for the next series of trainings.  The Division of Social Services contracts to provide four regional training centers throughout the state through which some of the classroom trainings are delivered.  Other classroom trainings take place throughout the state at various community-based locations enabling county child welfare staff to access learning close to the community in which they serve.  Training is delivered by dedicated staff with the Division of Social Services and by contracts with both university based trainers.
