Foster, adoptive and kinship parents are welcome to attend any of our trainings. Even if you adopted internationally or domestically, all Iowa adoptive parents are welcome to attend. All of our trainings are approved for foster parent credit. There is no cost to attend our trainings.

How to Register

Parents:

Foster, adoptive and kinship parents can sign up for a class* by completing our TRAINING REGISTRATION FORM or by calling our office at 800-277-8145 ext. 1. IFAPA will follow-up within two business days to confirm your enrollment in the class.

Social Workers:

Some classes have also been approved for Social Worker CEUs.
VIEW CLASSES APPROVED FOR SOCIAL WORKER CEUS.
Social workers can register for a class by mailing in our CEU REGISTRATION FORM
with their payment, or they can pay online with a credit card. Social Worker CEUs are per person and cost $15 for a 3 hour class and $30 for a 6 hour class.

Others:

If you are not a foster, adoptive or kinship parent, you may still register for an IFAPA training (i.e. daycare providers, CASA workers, other human service professionals, etc.); however, there is a charge per person to attend an IFAPA training. IFAPA trainings are $15 for a 3 hour class and $30 for a 6 hour class. IFAPA trainings are only authorized for foster parent training credit. If you would like this class approved for your specific training needs (i.e. for child care) it is your responsibility to get it approved for credit. REGISTER FOR A CLASS & PAY ONLINE
