Online Training Program

NCCADV's Online Training Program

 NCCADV’s Training Program appreciates your patience and understanding over the past months. We are dedicated to delivering high quality trainings that are relevant, engaging, and meet the ongoing needs of our members. Transitioning our high quality training content to an e-learning structure that meets our high standards takes time and we are confident our members will thrilled with the results

To ensure we are providing the best possible online training program our Training Team has been:

  • Attending trainings to better understand best practices specific to adult online learning;
  • Reviewing our current in-person content to identify necessary changes when transitioning content online;
  • Researching and becoming familiar with various online training formats and platforms;
  • Modifying content to encorporate elements and techniques of adult online learning best practices; and
  • Developing a strategic plan for creating an online training program that is tailored to our unique audience, sometimes chanllenging subject matter, and available resources.

Virtual Training Program

Virtual Advocates' Institute Training Series - Members Only*

The NCCADV Training Team has been hard at work transitioning our signature Advocates’ Institute 5 day in-person training to a virtual multi-part series. The result is a new online Virtual Advocates’ Institute curriculum that we are developing with special attention to virtual adult learning best practices.

Our Virtual Advocates’ Institute has been broken down into a series of cohort-based modules lasting approximately 2-3 months depending on the module. The modules will use a “flipped classroom” approach combining independant learning and live team video calls facilitated by our Training Coordinator, Nicole Feehan.

Domestic Violence Awareness - Open to the Public

Domestic violence (DV) is a public health crisis, and numbers of domestic violence calls continue to increase during the COVID-19 pandemic. This course will provide an overview of domestic violence and provide participants with an opportunity to engage in material that will increase their understanding about how to support survivors of domestic violence. This training is open to the general public, although will have a few pieces of information that is specific to those working as advocates or in the violence prevention and response fields.  

Understanding Confidentiality for Domestic Violence Advocates - *Members Only, North Carolina Specific 

In serving survivors, domestic violence advocates have certain legal obligations that guide their practices. This course will help advocates understand their obligations with regard to client confidentiality, advocate privilege, and best practices for serving survivors related to these obligations. NOTE: Confidentiality laws vary by state. This training is specific to North Carolina.
