The Oregon State Basic Victim Assistance Academy (Basic Academy) provides fundamental education for victim service providers and allied professionals who routinely interact with victims of crime. The September 2020 Basic Academy will be 100% virtual. This re-imagined, interactive, online format will ensure attendee safety and increase access. There will be synchronous and asynchronous elements of the Basic Academy. This means you will get to do some work at your own pace and then come together with your peers to learn other pieces and share your efforts.
Participants are obligated to participate in 40 hours of training. This means approximately 10 hours per week for four weeks, through a combination of self-paced individual work as well as set times for online classes with the entire cohort. The training will begin Tuesday, September 1st and conclude Friday, September 25th.
Basic Academy is a place for learning the fundamentals of effective victim advocacy and for building a sustainable, collaborative community dedicated to serving and empowering victims. More information about the SVAA Basic Academy is available on NCVLI’s website.
