Cancellations: In case of cancellations due to low enrollment, inclement weather, or emergencies, the training coordinator will contact everyone through the email that has been registered on your PDS Online profile. So please make sure your information is accurate and up-to-date. If a class is cancelled by Milwaukee Child Welfare Partnership, payments will be credited to your agency.
