Please Note

Effective March 31, 2020. Due to rising concerns of COVID-19 and the need for social distancing we are canceling all in-person trainings at IowaCASA until further notice. We ask for your patience and understanding during this unprecedented time as we work to provide the best training possible under the current conditions and necessary changes. Please email with questions or concerns.

All IowaCASA training is designed for victim advocates and victim advocate volunteers. A victim advocate is someone who is specially trained to provide confidential support and resources to victims of crime. Victim advocates and victim advocate volunteers associated with IowaCASA victim service programs will be given priority over others to attend IowaCASA training. If you are not a victim advocate but you are interested in receiving training from IowaCASA, please email
