Register for the Permanency and Adoption Competency Certificate program
Registration is now open for the Permanency and Adoption Competency Certificate (PACC) program through the Center for Advanced Studies in Child Welfare (CASCW) at the University of Minnesota's School of Social Work.
The PACC is geared towards mental health and child welfare professionals in Minnesota interested in increasing their competency in adoption and permanency practice. The 2013–2014 cohorts will be located at the University of Minnesota in the Twin Cities as well as in Brainerd (actual meeting location to be determined).
Schedule of Classes
The program begins in September. Sessions are held every 3 to 4 weeks through June 2014. Monthly case consultations begin in July 2014 and end in January 2015.
There are 13 in-class sessions, 2 online sessions, and 6 post-training clinical case consultation and supervision sessions.
Tuition and Fees
Registration has been lowered to $25. The Minnesota Department of Human Services Child Safety and Permanency Division has provided funding to reduce overall tuition, from $1,800 to just $400 per participant.
