Did you miss fall CORE 40 training?

We have provided a resource to access if you would like to view our CORE 40 training from October 2022.

CORE 40 is a free training course for Sexual Assault Advocates working with victims of sexual assault in Rape Crisis Centers or Dual/Multi- Service Organizations. Training topics offer “core” knowledge and skills and range from Neurobiology of Trauma to Immediate and Long-Term Impacts of Sexual Violence to Best Practices When Working with Law Enforcement. All classes are taught by professionals working in their field.

*Notes about registration: Sexual Assault Advocates must attend all courses to be eligible for certification. For everyone else, you will still be registered for all courses, but feel free to join just the class you want attend. But only the person registered will be able to receive credit. This is a self-paced course that reflects the presentations from our fall 2022 CORE 40 session.
