OVC, through OVC TTAC, provides an array of standardized, face to face trainings on topics relevant to victim service providers and allied professionals. Trainings range from 1 to 3 days. OVC offers these trainings to build skills in a particular topic for providers in a community, state, or region in order to build the capacity of participants to serve crime victims. Some topics are delivered through blended learning, a combination of virtual and face to face training. If you would like training on a topic that you do not see in the list of standardized trainings, please submit an application for assistance through the Customized Technical Assistance page.

For these trainings, OVC TTAC provides the following at no cost to you or the participants:

  • Two instructors
  • Onsite coordinator
  • Instructor training materials
  • Participant Manual for each participant.

OVC TTAC will identify the approved instructors for the requested training. Approved instructors are familiar with the curricula and, in many cases, helped to develop the materials. You will be responsible for covering any costs for the training facility and audiovisual and other equipment. All participants must attend in person.

You will need to submit all proposed written marketing materials (paper or electronic) to OVC TTAC for approval prior to disseminating. Marketing materials should include the OVC-approved training description and description of target audience. Keep in mind the required audience size when developing marketing materials. Please note that OVC/OVC TTAC logos may not be used in any event promotional materials.

What is capacity building?

Capacity building refers to the process of identifying the internal and external barriers that inhibit victim services organizations, allied professionals, or individual providers from delivering effective services to all crime victims, and building on existing strengths, enhancing skills, and providing new tools to overcome those barriers. TTA specialists will conduct a thorough needs assessment to maximize the use of OVC's resources to build capacity.
