Overview
 
 

Pinnacle Plan Point 3 Initiative 17: By September 1, 2013, OKDHS will develop and implement a certification program for child welfare specialists I-IV, which will require staff to demonstrate necessary skills and knowledge to obtain and maintain certification. Certification will be required prior to moving to the next level. This program compliments competency exams required of new child welfare specialists, ensures all staff achieve certain competencies before advancing to the next level, and provides ongoing training to ensure all staff maintain the necessary skills and knowledge to meet the needs of children and families.   It is imperative that staff not only comply with annual training requirements but also take the initiative to identify areas where extra training is needed to improve personal performance. Multiple trainings are offered to staff to improve knowledge and skill level in a variety of critical areas that are essential to meeting the needs of children and families.
