Partnership for Training Consortium - (PTC) Training Delivery

About the Project

Through a $3.4 million annual contract with the Florida Department of Children and Families, the PTC provides training and certification for the state of Florida and the various community-based agencies and Sheriff’s offices responsible for investigation and supervision of children and families who are at risk for abuse and neglect. This competency-based training includes classroom instruction, field-based mentoring and coaching, and review of quality case management activities through a statewide certification process, and advanced and specialized in-service education. The PTC has 18 years of experience in providing training and certification, and has trained more the 50,000 child welfare professionals and juvenile justice professionals, including 56% of child welfare professionals who are currently trained and certified in Florida. This PTC is directed by John Mullins, 813/974-9253.
