Students enrolled in the Family Development Credential program at Garrett College recently completed their training. The following individuals completed the program: Kim Crosco (Mt. Lake Park, Md.), Rosita Ezemma (Glen Burnie, Md.), Destiny Friend (Oakland, Md.), and Ryan Miller (Oakland, Md.).
The Family Development Credential program is offered through Garrett College Continuing Education & Workforce Development in partnership with Garrett County Community Action Committee, Inc.
The program provides frontline workers with the knowledge and skills needed to coach families to set and reach their own goals for healthy self-reliance in their communities. To earn the Family Development Credential, a worker must complete 90 hours of interactive classroom instruction, prepare a skills portfolio with support of a portfolio advisor, and pass a state credentialing exam.
"I feel all frontline workers should take the Family Development Credential course," stated Kim Crosco, a resident of Mt. Lake Park. "It’s very informative, educational, and we are able to collaborate better together as one team. I really enjoyed the class!"
"This was a great course," added Oakland resident Destiny Friend. "There really is something in it for everyone to take away!"
The next Family Development Credential program will start in September. This course can be taken as a stand-along course or part of the Human Services Associate program offered through Continuing Education & Workforce Development.
