Prospective Adoptive Parents (PAP) who are seeking to adopt a child from a country that is participating in the Hague Adoption Convention must complete 12 hours of training. IFS requires the following training in Convention cases. See also the first two notices below, both from the US Centers for Disease Control, on Lead Alert and Post Arrival Medical Exams.
