Step 3 - Complete Treatment Foster Parent Training and Licensing in Wisconsin

The last step to becoming a foster parent.

Treatment foster parent training and licensing is the last step to fostering in Milwaukee, Appleton, Madison and all over Wisconsin.Before you can start foster parenting, you’ll complete CCR Pre-Placement Training—a standard pre-license foster parent training. This is meant to ensure that you’re ready to be a lifeline for a child in need.

CCR Pre-Placement Training
Prior to being licensed as a CCR Foster Parent, you must complete our 30 hour Pre-Placement Training. This training will prepare you for your role as a CCR foster parent, while teaching you to care for treatment foster children.  You will learn State and CCR policy and procedure and receive an introduction to trauma informed parenting.

What you can expect

  • Pre-Placement Training prepares you for your role as a CCR foster parent while teaching you to care for treatment foster children.
  • Expect dynamic group work with the other foster parents in your training. See them as your resources and comrades in foster parenting—they’re going through the same thing you are.
  • Foster parent training is held at our office in Middleton.  If you live far away, don’t worry. We’ll take care of your lodging if you’re more than an hour away, whether you live in a bigger city like Madison, Milwaukee, or Appleton, or you live in a very small town—all you have to do is request hotel accommodations.
  • You will train with experts in the field of treatment foster care and trauma.

Get Licensed
Once your training is complete and we’ve gathered all of the required information, you are ready for a foster home license—and ready for a foster child.
