New Worker Certification Listening Sessions

The Minnesota Child Welfare Training Academy (MNCWTA) is interested in hearing your feedback about the proposed certification model for new workers. This spring, we will offer both in-person and recorded options to learn more about the model. In these sessions, we will provide background information and rationale for certification, the legislative requirements, and the structure of the proposed model for new worker certification. The presentations on the model will last approximately 20-25 minutes. For in-person sessions, this will allow time for questions and discussions. For those who watch the recorded presentation, we ask that you complete a feedback form after viewing.

To participate in-person, please attend a presentation at one of the open houses for our Regional Learning Centers (10:00-11:00 a.m.):
