Welcome to NCORTC!
North Central Ohio
The North Central Ohio Regional Training Center (NCORTC) is hosted by
Cuyahoga County Division of Children and Family Services:
Part of the Ohio Child Welfare Training Program, the NCORTC is committed to providing high quality culturally-responsive, family-centered, job-related training for child protective staff and certified caregivers in Cuyahoga County.
In cooperation with the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS), the Public Children Services Association of Ohio (PCSAO), and Ohio’s University Consortium for Child and Adult Services (OUCCAS), the staff of NCORTC has provided competency-based training since 1986.
PCSA staff, caregivers, and assessors should log into CAPS LMS to view and enroll in NCORTC training. Anyone who does not have access to the CAPS LMS should review PDF versions of NCORTC training calendars linked below and use the appropriate guest registration process detailed below.
Internal guests are county staff employed at a PCSA, JFS, or CSEA with a State of Ohio User ID (SOUID) that do not have a child/adult protective services role. These guests will contact their RTC directly to request access. Internal guests do not complete the guest registration form below.
External guests include but are not limited to retired staff, law enforcement, teachers, court-appointed special advocates, mental health professionals, and court staff such as public defenders and prosecutors. External guests will not be provisioned access to the CAPS LMS but will be added to the requested instructor-led session on a space-available basis. External guests must complete the guest registration form below to request access to training. You will need the session locator # listed on the training calendars linked below to complete the form.
