CASVSP will undertake development of a train-the-trainer program. It is anticipated that such program will be implemented at the end of 2021. In the meantime, CASVSP will continue to provide the Standard 5.20 and Family Code section 3200.5 in partnership with the Judicial Council/CFCC, Access to Visitation Grant Program. This decision is made by the Association to ensure that the quality of trainings and legislative intent and contextual understanding of Standard 5.20 is demonstrated by highly qualified competent trainers and/or training organizations that have worked closely with the Judicial Council of California.
As part of the train-the-trainer program, CASVSP will not consider any individual and/or organization that has not completed the Standard 5.20 and Family Code section 3200.5 training provided directly by CASVSP and/or the Judicial Council/CFCC and/or agencies and individuals that have worked closely in collaborative partnership with CASVSP or the Judicial Council of California. Trainers must have completed the statutory training requirements through the three- day, in-person training (at least twice) and not any online training for consideration as a possible trainer with CASVSP.
