ONCAC Accreditation Support Circles  
Virtual Circles

The accreditation and re-accreditation process can be stressful and intimidating for CAC staff and leadership. To counteract this and to give space for mutual support, ONCAC invites members to quarterly Accreditation Support Circles in which members can troubleshoot problems they may be facing, and offer information and support to other CACs.

Quarterly 2-hour calls held throughout the year.

  • March
  • June
  • September
  • December

Ongoing technical assistance will be available from ONCAC.

  • Policy reviews and mock site visits. 
  • Support in meeting standards.

ONCAC FI Interviewing Basics  
Monday, May 24, 2021 - Friday, May 28, 2021 - All Day
Virtual

Learn the internationally-recognized NCAC Child Forensic Interview Structure online in our interactive virtual classroom. NCAC instructors are practicing interviewers which allows them to engage beyond typical lecture methods with the most current, evidence-based, and practical experience. The training has been adapted to our virtual classroom and includes participant discussion, mock interview practicum with facilitator feedback, review of recorded forensic interviews, and experiential skill-building exercises.

Since 1998, the NCAC has provided Forensic Interviewing of Children Training to thousands of professionals from all 50 states and 12 foreign countries, as well as personnel from the Navy, the Marine Corps, the Air Force, and non-governmental organizations. Past participants have been affiliated with children’s advocacy centers, law enforcement, child protective services, medical services, legal agencies, and therapeutic practices. In order to foster a dynamic and unique learning experience, the virtual class size is limited to 30 trainees per session. This training is intended for professionals currently working as part of an investigative agency, a multidisciplinary team (MDT), or a children’s advocacy center (CAC). Because of the high demand for this training, professionals currently working as part of an investigative agency, a MDT, or CAC will be given priority to ensure that they have access to the training they need.
