WCSAP E-Learning Center

The goal of the WCSAP E-Learning Center is to provide up-to-date and accessible information on a variety of sexual assault topics. You must create an account to take the courses but the majority are open to everyone.

These courses are self-paced and do not involve interaction with an instructor or other course participants. To obtain the greatest benefit from this learning experience, participants will want to allow ample time to complete the activities and assignments in a complete and thoughtful manner. We hope you have a great training experience.
