Registration is now open for OAESV's Fall 2019 Training Institute for Sexual Violence Advocates!

About the Training Institute:

OAESV has created this training opportunity to fulfill the requirement in the Core Standards for Rape Crisis Programs in Ohio of 40 hours of introductory training for new advocates. Attendees will receive fundamental information necessary for providing effective services to sexual violence survivors in a variety of contexts, with a focus on medical & legal advocacy.

The Training Institute is intended to provide introductory skills and knowledge to sexual violence advocates who have been working in the field for two years or less, or are new to Ohio laws/procedures. Staff members from Ohio sexual violence programs / rape crisis centers, sexual assault advocates working on college campuses, or other advocates who have not yet completed the required 40 hours of training are welcome.

This hybrid training consists of 20 hours in-person and 20 hours online - these components are designed to complement each other and both must be completed to fulfill the 40-hour training requirements. This training is scheduled to be offered again in Spring 2020.

Online Component (20 hours):
The online component will take place on October 7 – November 1 prior to the in-person training; login information will be sent to all registrants on October 7. The online component must be completed by November 1. 

In Person Component (20 hours):
The in person training will take place from 8:30 AM - 5 PM at the Ohio Center for Occupational Safety & Health in Pickerington, Ohio on November 13 - 15. Information about lodging options is available on the registration page and will be sent via email to all registrants.
