In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the PA Child Welfare Resource Center has taken steps to protect the health of our staff, trainees, and community.
In response to the rapid developments regarding COVID-19, and in line with University, State, and Federal guidance, the Pennsylvania Child Welfare Resource Center recently suspended all in-person trainings, effective March 13th, until further notice. Our buildings are closed and staff are working remotely.
Therefore, the current training calendar through June 2020 is no longer relevant and will be adjusted as follows:
We appreciate your understanding and flexibility as we work collaboratively to limit exposure during this difficult time. We remain committed to meeting the essential needs of Child Welfare Professionals across the Commonwealth. You're welcome to direct your questions to your Regional Resource Specialist.
- An alternative online calendar to delivering the initial certification trainings for new Child Welfare Caseworkers and Supervisors starts the week of March 30th. Many Foundations Remote modules 1-4 and STS modules 1 and 2 will be delivered in April.
Additional remote online sessions will be added based on further direction regarding the duration of the social distancing guidance.
Our online learning platform (https://www.e-learn.pitt.edu/ ) continues to be available for your ongoing professional development needs.
We hope that we will be able to resume in-person sessions as soon as possible! Once we are able to resume in-person trainings, we will work very quickly to develop and communicate a new training calendar to offer certification and ongoing training sessions.
