Dating Violence, Domestic Violence, and Stalking

Dating Violence, Domestic Violence, and Stalking (DVDVS) Investigations Recertification Training Program

The Clery Act, as amended by the Reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act of 2013, requires that all investigators (criminal as well as civil rights/Title IX/conduct) and persons involved in the adjudication of dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking incidents receive annual training on the issues related to sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking. They are required to receive annual training about how to conduct an investigation and hearing process that protects the safety of the victim and promotes accountability.

Attendees of the D. Stafford & Associates Investigation of Dating Violence, Domestic Violence, and Stalking for Campus Police/Public Safety and Civil Rights (Conduct/Title IX) Investigators: Conducting Trauma Informed Investigations class are eligible to participate in the Online DVDVS Investigations Recertification training classes, which will fulfill the annual training requirement regarding dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking as required by the Clery Act. DSA will make available at least two required class per year for attendees to maintain their certification. Each class will include a quiz to assess learning.

The online training is delivered via a Learning Management System that can be accessed anytime. Attendees receive a certificate following the successful completion of the required online classes.

The online training class is limited to individuals who have graduated from the D. Stafford & Associates Investigation of Dating Violence, Domestic Violence, and Stalking for Campus Police/Public Safety and Civil Rights (Conduct/Title IX) Investigators: Conducting Trauma Informed Investigations class. DSA staff will verify that the person has graduated from the required class prior to providing the registrant with a login and password to the system.

The Online DVDVS Investigations Recertification Program is available at an annual cost of $89.00/person. If a registrant is also a registrant of the Online SAIR Training Program, the cost for the Online DVDVS Investigations Recertification Program is reduced to an annual cost of $69.00/person.
