WSCADV can provide reports to Member Programs that list the trainings their staff and volunteers have attended. You can use these reports to document training hours and show that you have complied with education requirements. Contact us to request a report.
Please note: WSCADV does not certify its trainings through any government or private entity. Contact your funder to find out if WSCADV training hours fulfill their education requirements.
Periodically, WSCADV receives funding to support pilot projects. Pilot sites are programs that agree to do field testing of training materials or assessment tools. In exchange for being a pilot site, programs receive goods, services and/or financial support. Opportunities are advertised on the directors email list. Directors, contact us to make sure you are on this list.
WSCADV staff are available to help member programs during regular business hours. We can help you find a resource, solve an especially sticky problem, or simply listen. Contact us.
