Introductory & Orientation Sessions

If you are interested in becoming a COIS Family Home Provider, the first step required is to attend a one-time orientation session.

Through this one and a half hour session, you will receive all the basic information about COIS and all of our certification requirements. Details from A-Z will be covered including but not limited to : the application process, roles/responsibilities, service expectations, steps to the certification process, home preparation, rates of reimbursement, training, our support system, the realities of being a provider, and more.
