Center for Training & Staff Development at Alaska Child & Family 

AK Child & Family for Training and Staff Development offers training and consultation to the Residential Care for Children and Youth agencies, at no cost to the provider agency. We do so in order to improve the quality of human service delivery for youth and families across the state.

Our training is need-based, goal-driven and data-informed utilizing ongoing assessment and evaluation at every step of the training process. We know that every program is unique, and that in the training world one size does not fit all. We use ongoing data collection and solution-focused customer service to tailor our training to the needs and goals of each client.

The Center has a broad collection of resources available to meet the professional needs of behavioral healthcare providers in Alaska. To meet your training needs, we will travel to your location, develop trainings online and create new trainings. We offer traditional classroom training, web-based training through our learning management system, blended learning (combining classroom and web-based), training materials and resource lending, consultation and assessment, and nationally recognized certification in residential childcare and behavior management.

We are here to support your care of Alaska's children. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or training needs.
