Thank you for showing interest in the 40-hour domestic violence training at CORA! 40-hour training is required by the State Law of California to work directly with survivors of domestic violence and their children. Once participants have completed the 40-hour training course, they will become eligible to move forward in the direct-service volunteer program at CORA.

Training will take place the first two weeks of May. Session dates and times are below:

- May 3rd & May 4th: 9AM to 5PM
- May 5th & May 9th: 9AM to 3PM
- May 10th & May 11th: 9AM to 5PM
- May 12th: 9AM to 12:30PM

Each session will include a 45-minute lunch break, and incremental breaks throughout the day. All participants are required to attend each session.

Additionally, after the last training session on May 12th, we invite all participants to a volunteer orientation. This will be a great opportunity for participants to get better acquainted with CORA, talk directly with staff, and complete their mandatory Live Scan fingerprint.
