Georgia Agency Training
Before beginning training, all trainees, as well as the agency contact person, are required to participate in a SafeCare orientation. The orientation is a 1 hour webinar in which NSTRC will provide you with information about SafeCare and how it is implemented. The goal is to give you a clear understanding of why GA DFCS is implementing Family Visitation Services/SafeCare, how training is conducted, and how SafeCare will be implemented. The orientation is critical for helping your agency know what to expect during training, and to answer and address all your questions and concerns.
SafeCare training begins with a workshop and continues with fieldwork supervised by a GA SafeCare Trainer. As part of SafeCare training, trainees must demonstrate skills via role plays, and complete quizzes to demonstrate mastery of knowledge.
Providers will participate in a five-day Provider Workshop and one-day Family Visitation Services Forms Workshop, for a total of 6 instruction days. Once workshop training is completed, the providers will have up to 180 days to become certified as a Provider.
