Once we receive your registration fee, you will receive an email with information on how to access the online course.

I have completed my courses in the old training site but I did not print off my certificate. Can I still get one? 

You can definitely get your certificate if you have taken the online course in the past 3 years. Please email us at [email protected] and we are happy to send you a copy of the certificate.

I am a PEACE Counsellor who is registered to attend the in-person training. What are the pre-requisite courses I need to take?

Hey! That's great that you are coming to the in-person training! You will need to do 4 courses in total: Foundations in Violence Against Women, Introduction to Working with Children and Youth Experiencing Violence (PEACE1), Supporting Children and Youth Experiencing Violence (PEACE2) and Violence is Preventable (VIP). You can enroll in all three courses HERE! Of course, there is a member code you can enter to get the discount. Please email us at [email protected] for more information.

How can I keep track of the training I've completed?

Your account automatically keep track of your progress for the training you're enrolled in.  When you login to your account, you can see what courses you have and your progress in the Training Passbook.  You can also print off a Anti-Violence Worker Training Passbook or PEACE Training Passbook and fill it in yourselves to help you keep track of the training you have completed.  After you have completed a course, you will be issued a Certificate of Completion.  We strongly encourage you to print off the Certificate of Completion as a record.
