The Oregon Coalition Against Domestic & Sexual Violence maintains a web-based core advocacy training course, constructed in accordance with State of Oregon guidelines (link is external) and intended to serve as a supplement to in-person training, supervision, and mentorship by an experienced advocate. 

Get access

In order to create accounts for advocates-in-training, each program must designate at least one person/account as a training contact (programs can have more than one training contact if they wish). Ideally, the training contact should be the direct supervisor of the advocate-in-training, but may also be a program manager, training coordinator, or the executive director. 

Know your role

There are two different types of user accounts:

  • Advocates-in-training can log in and participate in the course.
  • Training contacts can also create new student accounts and track the course progress of advocates-in-training within their program.
Find your program's training contact

If your direct supervisor is a designated training contact for the OCADSV e-learning platform, ask them to create a new student account for you.

If they are not, have your supervisor fill out and submit this web form (link is external).

Once your account has been created, you should receive an automated email message containing your username and temporary password (check your spam folder).

Privileged communications status and other confidentiality/privacy protections between certified advocates and survivors of domestic or sexual violence receiving advocacy services as provided under Oregon state law are only applicable to current employees of community-based or school-based domestic/sexual violence advocacy programs who have completed the training requirements (link is external) dictated by the Oregon Department of Justice - Crime Victims' Services Division and Oregon Department of Human Services.

Contact your local advocacy program

If you or your organization need training about domestic and sexual violence, contact your local community-based domestic violence / sexual assault advocacy program. They may be able to provide you with in-person training and/or create a student account for you to access the OCADSV e-learning platform under their supervision.

Contact OCADSV

If your local community-based domestic violence / sexual assault advocacy program is unable to provide the training you require, contact Chloe Massarello (link sends e-mail), our training coordinator, at (503) 230-1951 x300.
