To serve crime victims more effectively, victim service organizations must use fundamental financial management practices to stay solvent and operate properly. In this training, participants will learn key bookkeeping and accounting principles, how to prepare financial documents, how to prevent fraud, and the differences in available financial management tools.


This training is designed for those responsible for their organization’s financial management. It will be delivered online, over the course of 5 weeks, beginning on May 29, 2018. Each week, except for the introductory week, will include a facilitated webinar.


The Financial Management training is part of the NVAA Effective Management Series and, like all of OVC TTAC trainings, there is no cost to participate. Those who complete all components of this training will receive .9 CEUs.
