The Wisconsin Department of Justice, Office of Crime Victim Services (OCVS) Virtual Introductory Training for Victim Service Providers (ITVSP) offers the opportunity to acquire the essential skills and knowledge they need to assist victims of crime more effectively. OCVS ITVSP has four sessions: Enforcement of Crime Victims’ Rights & Marsy’s Law in Wisconsin, Crime Victim Compensation (CVC), Sexual Assault Forensic Exam (SAFE) Fund, and Safe at Home. The prerequisite to attend this training is to watch the following pre-recorded training videos: History of Crime Victim Rights in Wisconsin, Enforcement of Crime Victim Rights in Wisconsin, Crime Victim Compensation and The SAFE Fund, and complete a brief post-test to confirm your knowledge of the material. These videos provide introductory material that sets the foundation to attend the Virtual Introductory Training for Victim Service Providers. The training videos and post-test can be found online here. This training meets the requirements for those grant funded by SAVS, VOCA, and VAWA and is required for OCVS grantees every three (3) years.

SAVAS addresses the basics of being a victim advocate - answering the crisis line, providing individual and systems advocacy and providing outreach in your community. We are adapting sessions and activities to fit the constraints of web-based learning, while striving to provide a similar experience to in-person events.

 

Log-in instructions will be sent along with registration confirmation.

 

This opportunity is being offered to staff of WCASA member Sexual Assault Service Providers (SASPs) for no fee. The registration fee for staff of other organizations serving sexual assault survivors is $300 for the entire training.
