Upcoming Trainings

The Institute is excited to provide training on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Strangulation Crimes in the following communities:


Many of our trainings have been delayed or postponed due to the Coronavirus. We are continuing to navigate with all of our sites across the country. We are committed to continuing to train virtually or in-person depending on local or state health and safety rules and regulations. 

Listed below are our currently scheduled trainings that remain on our schedule for 2020. All of the trainings below will happen virtually or in-person. We have also agreed to adapt any in-person trainings depending on social distancing rules and requirements.
