20 hours of Pre-Approval Training is a required step in the RFA process. All 20 hours must be completed, though if you miss a day you may make it up in the next cycle. The training is offered online except for the last module.  The last module will be in person at the Marin Foster Care Association which will allow participants to meet one another and become acquainted with the services provided by the Marin Foster Care Association.

Please be sure to register by the date listed above the cycle.
