Please Note: If you are registering for a Parents as Teachers training, you will need to register here: http://www.parentsasteachers.org For all other Home Visiting Trainings, please use this PDS link.

Training registrations are accepted on a first come, first serve basis. We encourage you to register as soon as possible as courses typically fill to capacity. All training registrations must be made in advance. Walk-ins may not be accommodated. You are highly encouraged to register for training courses using the automated registration feature of our PDS Online System. If you have questions about which courses you are required to take, consult your supervisor, licensing worker/foster care coordinator, or the identified training personnel within your agency.

Continuing Education Hours (CEHs)

WCWPDS-Mke issues Continuing Education Hours (CEHs) for participation in all training courses. In order to receive credits for a course, participants must sign in at the beginning of each day and sign out at the end of each day to provide proof of attendance. Participants who miss more than 15 minutes or more of any training class will not be granted CEHs for the entire course and will be asked to leave.


We advise caution when cancelling a course, as we cannot guarantee that it will be offered again or within the timeframe in which you must complete it.
