General Information & Dates

General Information
Workshops are held over a 4-day period at our National Training and Research Center headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia on the campus of Georgia State University with SafeCare Training Specialists

Training curriculum will be provided to trainees on site by NSTRC on the first day of training. This includes the full Provider curriculum set and SafeCare carry bag.

The 4-day workshop is a combination of didactic presentations, breakaway sessions with our Training Specialists for extensive role-plays, and practice of skills for achieving mastery.

The cost for attending In-house Workshop in Atlanta can be considerably less per trainee because the cost does not include travel costs associated with sending NSTRC Training Specialists to external sites. Travel and lodging for In-house Workshops is the responsibility of the attending agency.

Light snacks with coffee and tea will be served each morning as room accommodations allow. A one-hour break is typically provided for lunch and the Welcome Guide has several recommendations for nearby food establishments. We suggest dressing comfortably for workshops.

An Orientation for each In-House occurs 2 weeks before the workshop via webinar. All attendees are required to attend.

Workshop Pricing

Pricing is contingent upon the number of training candidates per agency, additional support, and potential contractual standing, therefore we ask that you contact Lisa Dickman Jackson via email at to obtain further information.
