August 20, 1997
TO: All Family, Children and Adult Services Manual Holders
FROM: Arnold R. Tompkins, Director
SUBJECT: OAC Rules Governing Training Requirements for PCSA Caseworkers and Supervisors

This letter transmits Ohio Administrative Code (OAC) rules 5101:2-33-55 "Training Requirements for PCSA Caseworkers" and 5101:2-33-56 "Training Requirements for PCSA Supervisors." These rules were adopted in order to comply with the provisions of Substitute House Bill 274, which enacted Ohio Revised Code section 5153.122, mandating both in-service training requirements and ongoing annual training requirements for PCSA caseworkers and supervisors.

Former OAC rules 5101:2-33-55 "Training requirements for newly hired public children services agency (PCSA) caseworkers," 5101:2-33-56 "Ongoing training requirements for public children services agency (PCSA) caseworkers who have completed one year of continuous employment," and 5101:2-33-58 "Maintenance of public children services agency (PCSA) training records for caseworker" were rescinded.

Also included in this transmittal are the following forms:

ODHS 1825, "Public Children Services Agency Training Record for Caseworkers."

Instructions for ODHS 1825.

ODHS 1826, "Public Children Services Agency Training Record for Supervisors."

Instructions for ODHS 1826.

The above-listed forms are required forms that PCSAs must use to be in compliance with the rules.

These forms are to be county reproduced.

Training requirements outlined in OAC rules 5101:2-33-55 and 5101:2-33-56 should be fulfilled by attending the ODHS state funded regional training centers listed on the attached pages.
