NCVAN Victim Service Practitioner Certification Academy


Due to the effect of Hurricane Florence in our NC community, NCVAN has POSTPONED the NCVAN Victim Services Practitioner Certification Academy, scheduled September 17th – 21st


The RESCHEDULED Fall NCVAN Victim Services Practitioner Certification Academy will take place Monday – Friday, November 5 – 9th, 2018 in the same location!!


Applications are still being accepted!!


If you are unable to attend in November, you will also have the option of receiving a credit towards a future event. Should you choose this option, we will keep your application and carry-over your acceptance to a future Academy. Options include the spring Academy, scheduled for mid- March, or the fall 2019 Academy, which will likely occur the second week in September. Because of the unique nature of needing to reschedule this training related to the storm, we can also grant refunds, if preferred. 
We will be in touch now with more details, including an online means of indicating your preference for make-up, etc. We will send an email with a link to do so in the coming days.
For now, we ask that you focus on what assures the safety and well-being of you and those whom you love, and  those who are in your care. May our fellow North Carolinians also fare well in whatever it is we have before us.
