  1. Hi,
    I’m interested in learning more about financial scholarships for the Domestic and Sexual Violence Certification Training starting January 10th. Who could I contact to help facilitate this request

    I am interested in the training and education that you offer.
    As I live on the west coast, I am curious if there are possibly other times/ for these.

    I am looking at State of Alaska positions that work with domestic violence.

    Thank you
