Facilitator Certification Training For Delivering NCTI’s Preventing Sexual Misconduct Against Offenders Workshops
Do Your Part: Take Action – Educate Others About Preventing Sexual Misconduct Against Offenders
NCTI’s Preventing Sexual Misconduct Against Offenders Facilitator Certification Training addresses the staff training standards adopted by the Department of Justice (DOJ), and provides agencies with prevention and identification strategies to reduce incidences of staff/offender sexual misconduct. The standards adopted by the DOJ require criminal justice agencies to provide extensive training to staff, volunteers, and auxiliary personnel. The DOJ has stated that facilities that receive federal funds for housing offenders are required to abide by these standards. Many local facilities do not receive federal funding and may not be required to abide by the standards. Each agency should investigate and determine if they are required to abide by the standards. While an agency may not be required to adopt the standards, failure to do so could affect an agency’s liability, accreditation, and safety. Training required by the standards is available for juvenile and adult offenders, including probation residential facilities, lockups, detention centers, jails, and prisons. Additionally, the new standards will require agencies to adopt policies regarding zero tolerance, incident investigations, appropriate screening, and more.
This 21-hour Facilitator Certification Training, accredited by APPA, is a fast-paced, interactive course that instructs criminal justice professionals to effectively facilitate NCTI’s 8-hour Preventing Sexual Misconduct Against Offenders curricula. The training uses reality-based scenarios, activities, role plays, and group interactions to provide the necessary tools for staff to effectively recognize and reduce staff and offender victimization. Additionally, the Facilitator Certification Training addresses the importance of individual learning styles and behavior. Practice sessions allow participants to become familiar with the NCTI Preventing Sexual Misconduct Against Offenders curriculum.
