Comments from students who have experienced the training:

“This course was essential in moving our newly formed CCR to the next level.”

“This e-learning course was a fantastic way to learn about the very necessary perspective that a CCR Coordinator must take to ensure not only the success of the CCR, but also to best understand the viewpoint of the various CCR members. This focus on the bigger picture of the similarities and differences in our individual roles and their impact on how we view all facets of criminal cases. It has helped to make us aware of our own biases and how our daily work impacts how we approach cases. Without this understanding we wouldn’t be able to move forward.”

“Very user friendly.” 

“I supervise coordinators in seven counties and, [having completed the course,] I will require all of our community coordinator’s to do it. It is an excellent building block for us to develop our work…”

“The methods covered in the e-learning course form the foundation of our work with our partners in reviewing the efficiency and effectiveness of our response to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. We are gathering and reviewing data, rules, processes, and procedures to identify trends and gaps. We are planning interviews of key stakeholders about the processes and procedures they actually use (and how they are using them); and we are engaging survivors by both asking them about their experiences with the system and engaging them in the exploratory process.”
