A 3-hour orientation and 21 hours of resource parent training are required before your initial certification. The training is provided by our agency. You will also need to become CPR and First Aid certified and maintain certification. Training is given alternately on consecutive Thursday evenings from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. and on consecutive Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. You must also obtain 8 hours of continuing education annually to remain certified.

Extraordinary Families welcomes people who are going through the Independent Adoption process to attend our Adoption Specific Workshops and to make use of our Adoption Home Study, Post Placement and Post Adoption Services. We will work closely with your attorney or out of state agency to make your experience a positive one.
