Sexual Assault Investigations: Victim-Centered Engagement and Resiliency Tactics - Virtual

This training has been modified to a 4-day, 4.5 hour per day online format that also includes up to six hours of pre-course work and take home materials. SAI-VCERT will equip officers with knowledge and techniques designed to enhance interactions with traumatized victims and increase officer and victim capacity towards outcomes of offender accountability.

The students will also increase their aptitude in the following areas:

  • Direct and vicarious trauma
  • Effective sexual assault investigations
  • Interviewing and wellness tactics aimed at enhancing endurance, resiliency, and case and/or recovery outcomes

In addition to increasing their understanding of tactics and strategies for working with victims of sexual assault and developing these cases, participants will practice interviewing techniques that include reality-based scenarios utilizing actors and facilitators to guide the interviewing techniques at the foundation of this course.

To register for the course, contact your Training Manager to assign the training to you via the Learning Management System (LMS).

Upcoming classes are listed below.  Registration does not guarantee acceptance into the class.  Selections will be completed four weeks prior to the class; those accepted into the class will receive a notification at that time.

If classes are full, or not available, please complete the Course Interest Survey.  This is not a waiting list, but instead helps us see if there is enough interest to create another class.  If we schedule a session, we will contact everyone who has completed the survey and request that registration be completed.
