The Nevada Coalition to End Domestic and Sexual Violence Received a 2019 Community Fund Grant for Rural Communities Distance Learning Program.
Providing training to direct service providers in Nevada is an integral part of the work of NCEDSV as the statewide Coalition. The 20-Hour Advocate Certificate Program training gives basic knowledge from which to build expertise and experience of options available to battered individuals, understanding of the dynamics of battering, and a philosophy of empowerment.
The goals of the training include understanding the dynamics of domestic violence, becoming familiar with the resources and procedures, and developing a realistic attitude towards helping those affected. With this funding, the distance learning program will be enhanced through the development of additional web-based training.
