Free Foundational Training

The National Center for DWI Courts, in partnership with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, offers free 3.5-day foundational trainings for DWI courts.

Foundational training is for DWI courts that are:

  • Pre-implementation

    Programs still in the planning stages

  • Post-implementation

    Recently implemented programs that have not participated in formal training

  • In Need of a Refresh

    Established programs that have experienced significant turnover in staff

  • Never Formally Trained and Facing Challenges

    Established programs that have never participated in formal training

Why should your program participate?

  • It's free!

  • As part of the training, teams will observe an operating DWI court that is part of the NCDC Academy Court program.

  • Operational courts have rated this the best foundational training, whether they were recently implemented or addressing transition.

  • Our staff and a cadre of nationally renowned treatment court experts and practitioners work with selected teams to implement evidence-based practices, develop policy and procedure manuals, and build team unity.

  • At the conclusion of the training program, you will have your blueprint for implementation or transition.
