Online Red Book Training – Spring 2023
March 14 @ 3:00 pm - April 25 @ 5:00 pm MDT
This online Red Book Training Course is designed to assist you in preparing for the Child Welfare Law Specialist (CWLS) examination. It can also serve as an overall review of dependency competency areas. The course will consist of seven weekly webinars. The material covered in the course is drawn from Child Welfare Law and Practice: Representing Children, Parents, and Agencies in Neglect, Abuse, and Dependency Cases (4th Edition). The course is intended to assist you in breaking the material down, focusing on important concepts, and guiding you through the material in the Red Book. This course will not cover every part of every chapter. The instructor has made intentional decisions about what information to cover in the time that is allotted for the course. If part of a chapter is not covered, that does not mean that content will not appear on the exam. Therefore, you should incorporate any parts that are not covered into your self-study plans.
