Adult Foster Care Training
Adult foster care providers with 0-5 years of licensure are required to complete at least 12 hours of training annually. Providers with 6 or more years are required to complete at least 6 hours of training annually. Some providers may seek additional licensure (245D licensure) through the Minnesota Department of Human Services so they can provide services through a medical assistance waiver.


Vulnerable Adult Training
Vulnerable adult mandated reporter training needs to be completed before being licensed for foster care. Visit the Vulnerable Adult Training Registration website to complete the training.

When the training is complete with a passing score of at least 80%, you will be prompted to fill in your name and print your certificate which will be needed for your training record.
