Welcome to Pre-Service

This is the pre-service training approved by the Wisconsin Department of Children and Families. This content meets the requirement for pre-service training identified in DCF 43.

These modules are intended to be used as one component of a new worker's pre-service orientation package that should also include direct supervision, job shadowing, and other on the job training.

New Workers and Supervisors: We encourage you to complete the Pre-Service training in PDS Online as your PDS Online transcript will register a complete for "Case Worker Pre-Service Web-Based Modules" once you have completed all modules, thereby tracking completion of your pre-service training requirements.

Notify the Professional Development System that you are a new worker by following the instructions on the left bar entitled "Before You Begin".
