Distress Centre Calgary’s training is in high demand within the community. For many years this training has been available exclusively to those who commit to volunteering on our crisis lines, but after consultation with other organizations and requests from the public we are very pleased to be offering our training on a fee-for-service basis.
Distress Centre’s training is now available on a sliding scale for individuals, students, non-profit & corporate groups. Training includes access to reading materials, a professional trainer, and guided role plays. Please review the Fee for Service Training Outline for more details.
Training at Distress Centre counts towards Category A continuing competency credits with the Alberta College of Social Workers (ACSW). Each module counts for 3 credited hours. You must explain how this activity meets the personal learning goals you have set out for yourself by submitting a Category A Summary Form to the ACSW along with the certificate(s) provided.
For additional information on paid training and/or to book training please contact the Training Coordinator, Rachel O’Hara-Scully.
