The online Red Book Training Course (RBTC) was created by the National Association of Counsel for Children (NACC). The NACC is a nonprofit, professional membership and advocacy organization dedicated to advancing justice for children, youth and families. The NACC provides programs and resources to improve the quality of legal representation for children, parents and agencies. It provides high-quality training courses to child welfare law professionals around the United States.
The RBTC is designed to assist legal professionals in preparing for the Child Welfare Law Specialist (CWLS) examination. It also serves as an overall review of dependency competency areas.
The Red Book Training Course consists of seven weekly webinars. Five of these are 1-hour webinars; those in weeks 2 and 7 are each 90 minutes long. The material covered in the course is drawn from “Child Welfare Law and Practice: Representing Children, Parents, and State Agencies in Abuse, Neglect, and Dependency Cases” (also known as “The Red Book”). The course focuses on important concepts and guides participants through the material in The Red Book.
The registration fee of $200 per person for groups and NACC members ($100 for CWLS, $275 for nonmembers) includes access to live sessions, recordings, the electronic Red Book and the RBTC workbook. The Red Book can be purchased without taking the class.
