What is an Immersion Program Management Certificate Training? 

Walk in the steps of Savannah CASA while they open a supervised visitation center in their community in 2022. Through community collaborations and connected with their judiciary, they have landed the Savannah Family Visitation Center to meet this distinct need in their community by providing a home-like environment where families can practice being families. The SFVC will provide supervised visitations and parent education/coaching services to families referred via court order or DFCS. By intervening during this traumatic time and providing parents with the support they need to care for their children, our community will prevent future abuse and neglect. The SFVC will ensure that visitations take place in a safe and controlled environment to maximize developmentally appropriate interactions. Since the SFVC will be in a traditional home, families will have the opportunity to cook meals together, bond around the dinner table, host a family game night, play in the backyard, etc. Many of the crucial experiences missing in our families' current circumstances.

Join SVN while we not only spend time engaging in the Program Management certificate program, but also meeting with the Savannah Family Visitation Center Leadership while they talk about their journey into opening a visitation program in their community. We will also be meeting with community stakeholders, including their judiciary, while they talk about filling an important need in their community. 

Attendees will walk away not only earning the Program Management Certificate, one of only two credentials available in the field of supervised visitation, but they will also leave with the tools needed to effectively collaborate with community stakeholders.

The SVN BluePrint Team

 When you attend one of our regional sessions, you will join a team of SV Providers and allied professionals who will  discuss changes, adaptations and trends for our field leading to a formally published Position Paper designed to educate and inform courts, communities, and legislators.

The Blueprint Meetings will be one-day networking and brainstorming opportunities with a modest registration fee to cover costs.

This NOT a training, we will be facilitating the discussion with the intent to offer a concrete vision and pathway to increasing awareness of the value of supervised visitation. 

Regional BluePrint Teams will meet across the United States and Canada in the next 9-12 months

Next Blueprint Meeting September 29, 2022 in Niagara Falls, Ontario.

What exactly is a Certificate Training?

A certificate program is a non-degree granting structured learning program that is designed to meet specific and predetermined learning outcomes and for which individual achievement of intended learning outcomes is measured. It is different than a standard training program that issues a certificate of attendance. The key distinction is that certificate programs use a measurement of learner achievement (test). Similar to an academic degree, it does not speak to the ability to perform a specific job or career, but does demonstrate successful attainment of the information presented during the training.

Per credentialing industry practices, the organization issuing the certificate program (SVN) must also be the provider (SVN) of the educational program. This is an optional program and SVN members can elect to meet the SVN 24 hour training requirement independently of this program. It is worth noting that during the 3 year environmental survey conducted through the work of the credentialing committee, almost half of the members responded that there were not sufficient training opportunities in their areas. This program was developed to meet the need for training for those providers who have difficulty meeting the SVN training standards, or who may want formal recognition for attaining the certificate that is issued.

Please note that while this program was designed to specifically meet the SVN standards, it may possibly meet specific state and/or government requirements in your area. Each attendee is encouraged to seek counsel to verify applicability in their area.
