The Social Service Information System (SSIS) is a data entry and case management system used by over 10,000 state and county workers in a variety of different human service program areas. The SSIS Training Unit remains committed to the development of new worker training and resources for child welfare. SSIS Training partners with the Minnesota Child Welfare Training Academy in an effort to host informational sessions for workers in the program area of child welfare policy and SSIS data entry. The topics discussed within these information sessions are not often included in new worker training. Below workers will have access to previously recorded information sessions and resources as well as registration links for upcoming SSIS webinar sessions. For additional SSIS resources , visit the DHS Social Service Information System (SSIS) Resource Page.

SSIS Basics Video Course Now Available

For new workers, SSIS Labs are no longer part of Child Welfare Foundations Training. Instead, recordings of the SSIS training are now available on our Training page, under Quick Links, or by clicking here: SSIS Basics for Child Protection Workers. New workers can watch and review these videos as needed.
