About the Training Institute:

OAESV has created this training opportunity to fulfill the training requirement of the Core Standards for Rape Crisis Programs in Ohio; this requirement calls for 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. Thank you for your advance planning regarding the online component.

This training is scheduled to be offered again in November 2020 in the Columbus area.
