Depending on the work performed within the agency, some volunteers and all staff/interns must complete a certain number of training hours.
Our agency provides the training twice a year, typically in September and April. Following the completion of the training, each person will work with their program coordinator to learn program-specific skills and procedures. Individuals who attend all sessions will receive a certificate of completion, transferable for work in other agencies.
Click here for the next training schedule, taking place September 2013. The training is held at our office and other locations in the county and sessions are limited to 20 people.
It is possible to waive parts of the training for new staff/volunteers who have completed training through other domestic violence and/or sexual assault programs or volunteer trainings. In these instances, the original agency must verify training attendance and provide documentation that their training meets the current state requirements.
