Russia law mandates that U.S. adoptive families obtain up to 80 hours of pre-adoption training prior to completing an adoption from Russia. The Russian Law states up to 30 hours of this training must be in a face-to-face setting with a trainer. Our trainers, all trained by the University of Pittsburgh, will provide you with the required face-to-face training. This three-day course will prepare you for the online testing necessary to acquire your "Certificate of Training" which will be submitted as part of your dossier.
