STAR (Statewide Training Application Resource)

STAR is a web-based, self-directed application training tool. Trainees are able to learn the application systematically and at their own pace. The application makes it easy to revisit modules to reinforce learning.

STAR is located behind the County Logon area on the CWS/CMS website. To access STAR, users will need to obtain a User ID and password. Please contact your supervisor, county training coordinator, or SPOC to obtain access. Once you are in the County Logon Area, go to the Training Tab>Online Training Center. Then, select STAR from the right sidebar.
