Distance learning, or remote learning, makes sense as an option for busy foster families who need to get CEUs (Continuing Education Units) to fulfill license requirements. FosterClub offers these credits in a new free, online service at

FosterClub courses are composed of published articles, book excerpts, research papers, and reports produced by leading authorities in child welfare and available through the FosterClub Training Library. The site offers a quiz with each course to verify the learner's understanding.

Registered users of the site are able to keep track of CEUs earned and receive a certificate for each course completed. They also may print a transcript of all courses taken. Registration on the system is free, but users may view the materials without registering if they wish.
