In alignment with the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s policy surrounding COVID-19 precautions and in partnership with the WCWPDS-UW-Madison office, we have decided to postpone all face to face instruction and training at this time- effective March 14, 2020 continuing through July 31st, 2020. This includes training at the Milwaukee Child Welfare Partnership in Glendale and all training provided by our staff statewide. We will continue to monitor the changes as the situation continues to unfold.  Any new updates will be posted on our website. At this time, we will continue to exclusively offer virtual trainings for all program areas. For more specific information, please see the training calendars in the program tabs above or consult PDS Online.

Enrolled participants will be updated on changes to any schedules as they are made. Any trainings that had a fee paid will be refunded, and there will be no penalty for cancellations of trainings at this time. If you have a question on the impact this has on the status of your license or licensing process, we ask that you contact your worker directly with questions. The health and safety of our Staff, Trainers and Participants is our utmost concern and we hope that you remain healthy and well and that we will see you at training when we resume.

Virtual Class Handouts can be found here.
