Victim Service Practitioner Certification Academy


September 17 -21st 2018


The NC Victim Service Practitioner Certification Program is a program that is designed to certify those who provide services to victims of crime. The purpose of this training is to unite all persons in North Carolina who currently have experience in serving crime victims. Though many are seasoned in providing services to victims, the certification program aims to set a uniform standard for training professionals in crime victims services in North Carolina. Through an application process and ensuing training academy, service providers may become certified in areas of crime victim services. Registration and Information here.


Advanced Academy

The NCVAN Advanced Academy provides  practitioners a means to remain engaged and challenged in the work, and to renew understanding of emerging practices as we enhance our support of victims of crime.
