Free Foundational Training

Applications for 2022 DWI Court Foundational Training are now open!

Application deadline: Friday, March 18, 2022

Ready for some face time with the experts to answer your biggest questions? New for 2022, NCDC is offering our 3.5-day foundational training using a dynamic hybrid model of in-person and virtual instruction, where our experts travel to you!

Here's how it works: Two NCDC staff and/or faculty members will travel to each local jurisdiction in the regional training. Training modules will be prerecorded or livestreamed, with simultaneous viewing followed by in-person facilitation, Q&A, and instruction from our experts on-site. Teams will also enjoy a livestream visit to watch court proceedings by one of our DWI Academy Courts

Foundational training is provided at little to no cost to you and is the result of NCDC's partnership with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

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!

  • No travel required! NCDC experts will travel to your local jurisdiction.

  • As part of the training, teams will observe virtually an operating DWI 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 select teams to implement evidence-based practices, develop policy and procedure manuals, and build team unity.
