NFPA Training Institute

Sponsored by Centene

Centene Corporation and The National Foster Parent Association would like to welcome you to our new partnership to bring online training to caregivers nationwide via the NFPA Training Institute. Combining our child welfare expertise will allow us to disseminate training to caregivers more broadly, which will further support and empower them in providing the best possible care to our children and youth. Centene and the NFPA have committed to collaborate to create new curriculums and trainings that will give caregivers quick and easy access to education that addresses targeted issues they commonly encounter.
