Level I VTRA (Two-Day) Training School and Community Based Edition
Canadian Centre for Threat Assessment and Trauma Response
Training Purpose: The two-day training will provide participants with the steps and skills necessary to bring together education, police and community agencies to successfully participate in community based threat assessment protocol meetings and multi-disciplinary, cross sector VTRA assessments.
The training will further entrench the VTRA Model and its foundational principals for participants who have received VTRA training and as a community are committed to protocol development and multi disciplinary assessment.
Training Goals: Participants will leave with information that will enable them to apply the VTRA model to community based protocol meetings and the implementation of VTRA assessment objectives and strategies. Participants will hear about the conditions that are necessary to ensure protocol partners maintain rigorous assessment practices when assessing student behaviours.
