WCSAP strives to support sexual assault advocates and local programs by providing Advocate Core Training across Washington state regions three times per year, and ongoing training open for continuing education hours. Ongoing training is provided in-person across the state, as well as online via webinar or through WCSAP's e-learning center. All Advocate Core Training curriculum or ongoing training hours completed outside of WCSAP must be approved by the Training Specialist at WCSAP.
