CORE VICTIM SERVICES ACADEMY

CORE Victim Services Academy is integral to providing direct services to victims in the State of Washington. This forty-hour training qualifies participants to provide direct services to victims in Washington State. Victim Support Services (VSS) provides this essential training three to four times a year. Our CORE Academy is not open to community members at large. Training covers a wide range of topics including crisis intervention, the criminal and civil legal systems, cultural competency and victims’ rights.

 

Due to COVID-19, it is not safe to hold in-person training or events. However, the need for trauma-informed and victim-centered advocates does not stop. Therefore, VSS is working to develop a live, virtual CORE Training. The plan is for the CORE training to run for 5 hours per day for 8 business days. Please contact Leslie McPherson at leslie@victimsupportservices.org for more information.
