Statewide Foster & Adoption Assessor Training

While assessor training courses are sponsored by individual RTC's, these courses are considered "statewide" training, meaning foster & adoption assessors from any part of the state can register for any of these modules. View more information on Assessor Training Requirements.

Now that E-Track (the OCWTP's new online learning management system) has been rolled out to public and private agency assessors, assessors should now be locating and enrolling into all Assessor training through the E-Track system. The titles and learning codes used in E-Track for the Assessor Series are:

Tier I Modules

Family and Child Assessment (12 hrs) 201-A1-S

Service for Birth Parents (6 hrs) 201-A2-S

Post Finalization Adoption Services (6 hrs) 201-A3-S

Adoption Assistance (3 hrs) 201-A4-S

Placement Strategies (3 hrs) 201-A5-S

Pre-Finalization Services (6 hrs) 201-A6-S

Tier Two Modules

Achieving Permanency through Interagency Collaboration (6 hrs) 201-A7-S

Openness in Adoption (12 hrs) 201-A9-S

Gathering and Documenting Background Information (6 hrs) 201-A10-S

Cultural Issues in Permanency Planning (12 hrs) 201-A8-S

Assessor Refresher 201-A11-S
E-Track Tip
Did you know that you can quickly search and enroll in available sessions of these courses inside E-Track? Simply follow the steps below or, for more information, view the E-Track Quick-Start Guide.

Register for Assessor Training in E-Track:

  • Navigate to https://e-track.teds.com/EveryOne/TEDSEveryOne.jsp in your Internet browser.

  • Log into E-Track. Your username is determined as follows:

    • 2-digit birth month
    • 2-digit birth day
    • first initial of legal first name
    • first 5 letters of legal last name (add zeros if less than 5 letters)
    • then the number "1"

    Your username will always be 11 characters. (Ex: Jane Smith who was born on January 15th would have a username of 0115jsmith1).

    Your password is either the same as your username or your full last name. NOTE: Once logged in, you can change your password under the orange "Profile" tab.

    If you are unable to log in, you either do not yet have a record in E-Track or the information we have for you is incorrect. In either situation, contact your regional assessor registrar from the list in the final bullet point of these instructions.


  • Once logged in to your E-Track dashboard, cut and paste the appropriate red learning code from the Assessor Module list above into the box underneath "What would you like to learn today?". Click the "Code" button immediately beneath that and click the orange "FIND IT" button to the right (see example below):

  • The resulting screen will list detailed information about the module you selected. Click on the underlined words "Enroll or View Available Dates for this Learning" on the left-side menu to see where and when the module is being offered.
  • Review the dates, times, and locations of the individual sessions returned, and then click on the symbol to the far left of the session in which you wish to enroll.

  • Another screen will be displayed showing you are now enrolled in the session. Just click on the OK button to move on. You should now be enrolled in the session selected and should receive an emailed confirmation of your enrollment with 24 hours. If you do not receive a confirmation or have any problems completing this process, please contact the appropriate assessor registrar from the list below:

    Cleveland: (216) 881-7511 (Julius Jackson)
    Akron and Lorain County: (330) 856-5582 ext. 110 (Michelle Wolcott)
    Cincinnati and Beavercreek: (513) 225-4378 (Pam Ross)
    Toledo: (419) 469-0016 (Sara Fiser)
    Cambridge: (740) 432-2355 (Darla Zajack)
    Athens: (740) 592-9082 (Tracie Stein)
    Columbus: (614) 278-5911 (Linda Hoffman)

Statewide Supervisor Core Training

Statewide rounds of Supervisor Core are scheduled centrally in Columbus and are open to supervisors from anywhere in the state, to supplement regional offerings of the series sponsored by each RTC.

Now that E-Track (the OCWTP's new online learning management system) has rolled out to PCSA supervisors, all supervisors should search for and enroll in Supervisor Core training directly through E-Track, rather than by contacting an RTC or IHS.

E-Track Tip
Did you know that you can quickly search and enroll in available sessions of the Supervisor Core series inside E-Track? Simply log into E-Track, enter SC into the "What Would You Like to Learn Today" box, check the "code" button beneath that, and click "Find It." Then click the appropriate module and select "Enroll or view available dates for this learning" on the resulting screen's left-side menu to find the date and location that best meets your needs. For more information, view the E-Track Quick-Start Guide.

For questions related to Statewide Supervisor Core training, contact Nancy Martin.
