The Child Welfare Training Institute (CWTI) develops, implements, trains, evaluates, tracks, and monitors training for child welfare staff. We offer core competency classes designed to prepare Michigan caseworkers and supervisors for careers in both the public and private sectors. Our primary training programs include family preservation, children’s protective services, foster care, adoption, juvenile justice and PRIDE. We offer specialized training statewide to child welfare staff. Training is often also available to law enforcement; tribal social workers; legal, medical, and mental health professionals; and many others who touch the lives of Michigan’s children and families. We strive to be respectful, responsive, efficient and creative in the development and delivery of child welfare training. Browse our website to learn more about the training we offer.
