Online Learning: Training at your own pace

Looking to upgrade your skills or expand your knowledge? Springtide offers e-learning for frontline workers and others on woman abuse issues. Take these self-directed online courses from the comfort of your home or anywhere you have internet access.

This fall we launched two legal information courses. "Love, Sex, Violence and Crime" provides an overview on criminal law as it relates to violence against women. "After She Leaves" is designed for those supporting woman abuse survivors through the family court process. Both courses were developed by Pamela Cross, a leader in legal education on violence against women issues.

Services must meet the standards of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act as of January 2012, and that includes women's shelters, sexual assault care centres and related agencies. Get required training through our free AODA e-learning.

In an unique partnership, Springtide worked with the Ontario Dental Hygienists' Association to create the "Detect, Respond, Refer" training. With more than 75% of intimate partner abuse injuries occurring above the shoulders, dental hygienists can play a key role in supporting women. 

Response to our various trainings is extremely positive. And the most common compliment is the convenience these self-directed trainings offer. Whether you've got a crammed work schedule or a baby napping, a self-directed training will fit your schedule.
