What is OHSTS?
The Ohio Human Services Training System (OHSTS) began providing in-service training in 1989 to Ohio’s Adult Protective Services workforce and their private and public partners.
OHSTS is a cooperative effort between the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, Regional Training Centers and Ohio’s University Consortium for Child and Adult Services (OUCCAS). The statewide Steering Committee provides program oversight and governance of the developmental and operational activities necessary for OHSTS to achieve its mission.
The Regional Training Centers coordinate training events in local agencies based on identified learning needs for Adult Protective Services staff. Learning opportunities include both instructor-led training and self-directed courses. The system promotes culturally competent practice and plans deliberate strategies to transfer learning from the classroom to the workplace.
