2020 Standard 5.20 and Family Code section 3200.5 Trainings During COVID-19

Effective January 1, 2020, Family Code section 3200.5(e)(10(A) provides that the professional

provider of supervised visitation must “complete 24 hours of training prior to providing

visitation services, including at least 12 hours of classroom instruction in the following

subjects…” Given the COVID-19 pandemic, the Judicial Council, Operations and Programs

Division, Center for Families, Children & the Courts (CFCC) suspended in-person trainings and

meetings. In addition, because of the continued safety risks posed by COVID-19, Judicial

Council program staff has been advised to plan for converting in-person trainings to a remote

web-based platform through December 31, 2020.

The 2020 Standard 5.20 and Family Code section 3200.5 in-person Training will be converted to

live, interactive, immersive classroom instruction using Web Ex and/or another appropriate

platform. This is not an online training, as generally, an online training allows the individual to

self-pace and customize the training to suit an individual’s specific learning needs. Furthermore,

consistent with the underlying intent behind AB 1634 and AB 1165, online completion of the 24

hours of training requirements under Standard 5.20 and FC section 3200.5 for professional

providers has not been recommended. In the meantime, the below provides some guidance on

What Training Can You be Working on Now towards completing 24 hours of training to meet

compliance requirements.

Current Trainings

 

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR 2020 TRAININGS:

 

The Judicial Council/CFCC, Access to Visitation Grant Program, in collaboration with CASVSP, has been able to provide free Standard 5.20 and Family Code section 3200.5 trainings statewide for professional providers of supervised visitation. Over the last 2 years; however, attendance at the various trainings, despite the benefit of a free training, there has been numerous last minute cancellations and no-shows that has resulted—in parts, with low-attendance. In preparation for [these] trainings, considerable administrative time and resources is invested in preparation of the training. In view of the these challenges, California’s Access to Visitation Grant Program and CASVSP has adopted a new approach for how free-based trainings will be delivered.

 

Attendance Policy (effective February 2020)

Anyone seeking to attend a free training must:  

 

  1. Register and attend the training.

  2. Complete the pre-requisite assignments prior to Day 1 of the training.

  3. If cancellation is necessary, the reason for cancellation must be in writing and submitted by email to shelly.labotte@jud.ca.gov no later than two weeks prior to the start date of the training.

  4. Important: Failure to cancel within the cancellation period will void any free training opportunities within a 12-month period.

 

Eligibility to participate:

Who can participate in the trainings? The trainings are designed for professional supervised visitation providers—individuals working in a supervised visitation center or agency or independent providers, court personnel, grant recipients, and other professionals from, various organizations. Please note: The Judicial Council and CASVSP reserves the right to ask individuals to cease participation based on either past or present behavior. Behaviors from past trainings where an attendee has engaged in a manner deemed inappropriate, unprofessional, and disruptive.   

 

Training Opportunity:

CASVSP will offer attendees that have successfully completed the Standard 5.20 training within the last 12-month period, an opportunity to take a refresher course, at no costs, provided space is available (first come, first serve).
