Certified Safe & Together™ Model Training (currently available in Australia and the UK)! Coming soon to North America in mid-2019!

Due to global demand for Safe & Together Model training, we developed a new model for certifying trainers (currently available only in Australia; coming to North America and the UK soon).

Who are we looking for?

Agencies that demonstrate a commitment to domestic violence-informed practice, high-quality training and an interest in disseminating the Model. While we want to establish a relationship with an agency, we only certify individual trainers. Applicants must have significant experience using the Model (completion of the CORE Training is a minimum requirement). Individuals with experience delivering training are preferred but not required.

  • Have completed CORE Training with a passing grade
  • Be accepted as a candidate based on the application process
  • Work for an approved Safe & Together Institute agency partner
  • Complete five days of in-person training
  • Successfully complete video observation of the CORE Training
  • Participate in mandatory remote coaching sessions with a Safe & Together training mentor
  • Submit videos of their Safe & Together Model trainings
  • Complete required reading and online learning
  • Pass a knowledge test
  • Hold a Bachelor’s level or higher degree in a relevant field
  • Experience both with domestic violence and child welfare systems preferred
  • Watch CORE Training video excerpt
