Trained Volunteer Programs
What is Core Competency Training?
The FCADV/Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence has created a 24-hour training course called Core Competency. If you wish to work directly with our participants, it is HOPE’s policy to train you through the FCADV curriculum. By taking Core Competency and passing the written test, you receive certification and the knowledge necessary to work in the field of domestic violence. You will also receive “privileged” status, meaning any information shared between you and a participant will be held confidential after an additional 6 hour program specific training.
How much does Core Competency cost?
The course is free for those who volunteer.
If you would like to keep your training book, the cost is $35.
How often is Core Competency offered? How long is it?
The course is offered as needed.
Core Competency is a 30 hours training.
