Training

Training Overview

Our courses are designed for people working in VAW shelters in Ontario and for all others who work in the VAW sector or in roles that involve supporting, advocating, or providing services for women who have experienced violence. These courses will be useful for students or others who are interested in working in this field and want some practical learning to supplement their studies or build their understanding of the work.

Most of the certificate courses meet the VAW Training Core Competencies developed by VAW Learning Network.

Badges are awarded for completing courses so you can keep track of your learning and add your accomplishments to your portfolio or C.V.  All courses, webinar and video content are free.  Your access will not expire, so you can take as long as you need to work through the materials, and come back to refresh your memory or access resources at later dates. 

Thanks to the Ontario Women’s Directorate for funding support that makes it possible for us to provide accessible training to VAW support workers in Ontario.
