We are now offering online training of Resource Family Approval classes for Humboldt & Del Norte Counties through Zoom Video Conferencing.  We will make every effort to deliver high 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 separate 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 emailed to you and 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.  Downloading the Zoom App  Zoom Video Tutorial
