Additional Training Courses

Other organizations offer excellent online courses with valuable instruction for child advocates. These courses are offered in different formats including text, audio and video and may include a quiz. Many of these courses were developed with a specific audience in mind, so not all material will be wholly relevant to your individual role. We have selected the specific courses we feel are most relevant to CASA volunteers, but we encourage you to explore the other courses if they will fulfill an educational need.
