Welcome to SWORTC!
The Southwest Ohio Regional Training Center (SWORTC) is housed at:
Part of the Ohio Child Welfare Training Program (OCWTP), the SWORTC is committed to providing high quality, culturally- responsive, family-centered, job-related training for child protective staff and certified caregivers in the region’s eight counties: Adams, Brown, Butler, Clermont, Clinton, Hamilton, Highland, and Warren.
In cooperation with the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, the Public Children Services Association of Ohio, and Ohio’s University Consortium for Child and Adult Services (OUCCAS), the staff of the SWORTC has provided competency-based training since 1986.
PCSA staff, caregivers, and assessors should log into CAPS LMS to view and enroll in SWORTC training. Anyone who does not have access to the CAPS LMS should review PDF versions of SWORTC training calendars linked below and use the appropriate guest registration process detailed below.
