Certification: Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Crisis Intervention and Advocacy Training
One SAFE Place requires volunteers who work directly with clients to attend the 66-hour training course, accredited by the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (CalOES) as outlined in Penal Code section 13835.10. This course is usually offered twice annually. One during spring semester (January-May) at Shasta College and as an 8-week option later in the year at One SAFE Place. While the course requires commitment of time and energy, at completion volunteers are certified as Crisis Intervention Advocates.
A fee of $25.00 is charged per training course. Incentives and scholarships are available.
The next DV/SA Crisis Intervention Counselor Training will be held in October 2020.
Our 8-week course will be held on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30p.m – 8:30p.m. We will start on October 26th 2020 and finish on December 18th 2020.
Why take this course?
One SAFE Place (OSP) is a local non-profit dedicated to providing intervention and safety to the community of Shasta County affected by domestic violence and sexual assault. There is so much work to be done here in our community and we need volunteers and people who will step in to make a difference. We have many volunteer opportunities within OSP but all volunteering opportunities that involve clients require this 66 hour training which is certified by the California Office of Emergency Services (CalOES) as outlined in Penal Code section 13835.10. This course will equip you to help survivors in a crisis situation and give you an understanding of how to provide trauma-informed care in your interactions with survivors.
How will the course be presented?
This course will not be in person, it will take place on Zoom (an online video communication app.)
Attendees must tune in in real time with a computer or cellphone that has a camera and the functionality of a microphone. This course will be interactive and there will be opportunity for Question and Answer.
I have schedule conflicts with these class times, is there a way to watch the class later?
Unfortunately, due to CalOES’ requirements, we are required to hold classes in real time and we are unable to offer that option at this time. All of our classes will allow time for Question and Answer.
You can miss up to 3 classes as long as you can make up the class work at another time on an hour by hour basis.
