Turkey Response Team Training

November 13-16, 2019


General Information

Orientation will be taking place on Wednesday, November 13, 2019, from 4:00 to 6:00pm. The RTT will follow running Thursday, November 14 through Saturday, November 16 at 5:00pm. 

Response Team Training (RTT) provides three days of intensive modular training on how to respond to child safety reports. This course is designed to specifically equip response team members, with the knowledge and skills to respond to a report of harm to a child within your organization. This training is a specialized course focusing on response team protocols for organizations who have an established Child Safety program and are able to respond to any reports of concern. This training is not a general Child Safety Training program, although it will give your organization an overview of what is ultimately needed. Attendees should be members of your organization who will be part of your response team, either as a team member, management/leadership of a response or member care staff who will support those directly involved.

The Response Team Training is reserved for CSPN Member organizations. Mission agencies and international schools are encouraged to send 2-4 people to the same RTT event. CSPN Members must be approved by their organization’s gatekeeper to attend. Please plan to attend every RTT session over all three days of the training.
