    The purpose of this course is to facilitate consistent statewide implementation and ongoing administration of the Complaint Resolution and State Hearing Regulations.,br />
  • DCSS Trainer Certification Program
    The Department of Child Support Services (DCSS) Trainer Certification Program (TCP) was created to certify a pool of trainers to develop and deliver the Child Support Program curriculum.

    TCP Level 2- Level 2 Trainers are certified by the DCSS Statewide Training Branch. Level 2 Trainers are certified to administer and train the TCP curriculum and other Child Support curriculum to staff at their own LCSA or another LCSA. When a Level 2 Trainer provides the TCP curriculum to a child support professional, the trainee becomes a Level 1 Certified Trainer. (Note: You do not need to be certified as a Level 1 Trainer to be certified by the DCSS Statewide Training Branch as a Level 2 Trainer.)

    TCP Level 1- Level 1 Trainers are certified at their LCSA or another LCSA by Level 2 Trainers. Level 1 Trainers may train Child Support curriculum to other child support professionals or stakeholders.

      For more information about the TCP, please contact the Statewide Training Branch.
