The Division of Child and Family Services (DCFS) will hold foster/adoptive parent training on Saturday and Sunday and Jan. 24 in Carson City.

Each day runs from 9:30 a.m.-6:30 p.m. Training sessions will be held at Carson-Tahoe Regional Medical Center, Valley View Room, third Floor, at 1600 Medical Parkway in Carson City.

The training curriculum utilized is P.R.I.D.E. (Parent Resources for Information, Development, and Education) and consists of nine three-hour sessions designed to educate and equip applicants to provide foster and/or adoptive care to children in the child welfare system.

Foster parents are required to attend a pre-service training prior to obtaining a license. A foster family must meet all minimum licensing standards as established by Nevada Revised Statutes 424.
