Due to the Coronavirus public health emergency, we will be moving to online training for Humboldt & Del Norte Counties RFA classes through Zoom Video Conferencing.  We will make every effort to deliver quality training by the same local professional trainers who have worked with our program for many years.


Zoom Instructions:

Below is the schedule of classes with the link to register for each class. Each student must register using a seperate email address. On the day and time set for the training, open the link and view the training.  You will be able to ask questions by typing them into the "Chat Box" or asking them at the end of the training. You will also be required to complete the course evaluation at the end of the class. Upon verification of your participation, the “Certificate of Attendance” will be mailed to you and emailed to Child Welfare Services.

Before joining a Zoom meeting on a computer or mobile device, you can download the Zoom app from our Download Center.  Otherwise, you will be prompted to download and install Zoom when you click a join link. You can also join a test meeting to familiarize yourself with Zoom.
