Training commitment and dates:

The NASW VA/Metro DC Professional Certification in Trauma and Resilience Informed Care Training Program will be comprised of 34.5 hours of online training.


  • 19.5 hours will be achieved on your own time via a Learning Platform that you have access to 24/7.

(You may complete this work at any time, however, based on prior participant experience the schedule below gives you a pacing guide that we have found to be helpful.)


  • Three Half-Day and Two Evening Sessions (15 contact hours) are conducted over the 6-month period. This content will be offered via live webinar on a Learning Management System (Zoom). This is a place to integrate what you are learning during the on-demand sessions with real time application and opportunities to ask questions directly and learn from others.

Live sessions are offered at a variety of times including weekday mornings, two evening and a weekend morning.

- 2 weekdays in the morning

- 2 evenings

- 1 Saturday morning


A 1-hour orientation meet up is offered prior to the class starting. This meet up helps you get to know the Learning Management System used in the course, ask logistical questions, and get to know your fellow participants. It is helpful to attend this live. In case live attendance is not possible for you, this session is recorded and placed in the Learning Management System for your review.


Participants are expected to attend all live webinars at the scheduled date/time. If there is a crisis or emergency that prevents that, a participant will need to work with the instructor to see if make up time and work can be accepted.
