Jan. 30, 2013 - PRLog -- The® (FPC) website has been redesigned to make using it simpler and more enjoyable.

Visitors to the new site will see the first big change on the opening page, which has a slide show spotlighting individual classes. A bubble pops up as you scroll over a slide. Bubbles contain an image and a brief description of a course, a button for watching the course preview, and another button for getting started on the registration or enrollment process.

FPC members can log in and create a personal profile. The profiles include very basic information about users and their experience working with children. No confidential or contact information can be shared in the profiles. A thumbnail of a user’s profile can be seen by other members when the user posts a comment on a discussion board.

Dozens of other changes are part of this project, all designed to enhance users’ experience on the site. More improvements are in the works for phase 2; watch for them in early spring. As always, establishing a FPC account is free.® provides interactive online training for foster, adoptive, and kinship parents. There are 39 courses available at this time. Titles include Child Development, Substance-Exposed Infants, Child Abuse and Neglect, Grief and Loss in the Care System, Culturally Competent Parenting, and Child Safety and Supervision.® is:

rated by the California Evidence-Based Clearinghouse for Child Welfare
endorsed by the NFPA, the Foster Family-based Treatment Association and the Canadian Foster Family Association
approved by CASA and the National Adoption Center.
