Freedom from Sexual Violence

Online Learning Center

Training new staff and volunteers sometimes poses a challenge for sexual assault programs with limited resources and time. With our online courses, participants can learn at their own pace when their schedule allows. We also encourage participants to explore and study the additional resources that are provided throughout each course.

If you are interested in enrolling in a course or have any questions, email Maria Mendez, Training and Technical Assistance Manager, at maria@ccasa.org with the name of the course you are interested in taking. A certificate will be provided upon completion of each course.

We currently have 3 online courses that are available for free to CCASA members:
