Through additional funding awarded by the Office for Victims of Crime, the SANE-SART Resource Service’s Online Learning Program is expanding to include special tracks for victim advocates, law enforcement officers, and legal representatives beginning this September.
After completing 32 hours of self-directed online learning, the student will attend an 8-hour webinar that will augment the information provided online and allow learners to ask questions of a subject matter expert, which will complete the training at a total of 40 hours. The webinars will also be taped and stored online for others to review at a later time.
To participate, complete the application form for your discipline posted on the SANE-SART Website.
You will be asked on your application if you are interested in assembling a SART team for a 2-day onsite SART Interactive Scenario, in which your team will take a sexual assault case from first report through a mock trial under the direction of our team of experienced SART professionals. If you check the box indicating that you are interested, you will receive further information along with a team application form. To be considered for this opportunity, your SART team must have four disciplines represented within it. Onsite training will be provided for three teams from each of the five U.S. regions. Participants will not be charged for training and will be reimbursed for any necessary travel expenses they incur, including air fare, meals, and lodging, to a maximum allowable level.
Help us increase the field’s awareness of the expanded training program by forwarding this announcement to other interested professionals. Direct any questions to the SANE-SART Online Learning Program Administrator.
