This training will introduce Child Welfare Specialists to competencies to help them have a better understanding and working knowledge of the statutes related to child abuse and neglect and the juvenile court system. Specialists will gain a working knowledge of legal definitions, rules and statutes concerning child abuse and neglect reporting and investigations, steps in the juvenile court deprived case, and the movement of children. Through the online modules, this training addresses court procedures and statutes found in Title 10A of the Oklahoma Statutes.
The online content consists of 11 modules and takes approximately 5 hours to complete. This training is self-paced, meaning you are not required to complete the training all at once and you are able to complete modules as you need. The modules do not have to be taken sequentially, so if you need to access one or two of the modules for different learning purposes, you can do so.
You are required to complete all modules and the required survey in order to complete the class. At the end of the survey, you will be able to print out a certificate of completion. You do not need to submit the certificate, as the submission of the survey will indicate your completion of this class. Should you have any questions, please email the Child Welfare Training folder.
Because this class has not been offered since October 20, 2016, specialists were previously allowed to progress to their next level without this course. As of October 13, 2017, specialists have been assigned this course and will be required to complete this training prior to progressing to the next level. For newer specialists, this class will be assigned at the time of reaching 50% caseload assignment.
