Making a Payment

Directions: To determine which agency is sponsoring a training, please go to PDS Online. View the training on the training calendar or go to your transcript and click to view training details. Toward the bottom of the page, you will see session details including agency.

Home Visiting Professional Development

The Home Visiting Training and Technical Assistance requests that upon registration you will mail payment in the form of a check to:

UWM - Helen Bader School of Social Welfare
Attn: Home Visiting / Danielle Hayes
P O Box 786
Milwaukee, WI 53201

Checks should be made out to Milwaukee Child Welfare Partnership and include the name(s) of the person and the training title(s) with the payment.

If you require an invoice in order to make payment or have any questions please contact us directly at

We do not issue refunds unless a session has been cancelled due to low enrollment. If you have already paid for a session and can no longer attend we will issue a credit to your agency for future use for anyone in your agency if we are notified 1 week prior to the start of the class.

Milwaukee Child Welfare Partnership

Due to a partnership with the Bureau of Milwaukee Child Welfare (BMCW) we currently do not charge a fee for BMCW Staff or Foster Parents.

Wisconsin Child Welfare Professional Development System (WCWPDS)

The Wisconsin Child Welfare Professional Development System invoices your agency on a monthly basis for all training sessions that have been completed in the previous month. This bill will list all those from your agency who owe any training fees. There is no need to make arrangements for your agency to pay for your training session in advance (in fact, we prefer that they do not).

Checks are made payable to UW-Madison and mailed to the address below:

Wisconsin Child Welfare Professional Development System
8010 Excelsior Drive, Suite 100
Madison, WI 53717
