Limited Spots Still Available - Apply Today!

Ready for some time away from the office with your team to implement or overhaul your DWI court? In 2023, NCDC is back to offering its in-person, 3.5-day foundational training, where your team travels to one of our DWI Academy Courts to attend the training and receive mentoring from the host court.

Here’s how it works: Your DWI court team will travel to an academy court, receive in-person training, be connected with one of our expert faculty members for one-on-one facilitation, and observe the host court.

Foundational training is provided at little to no cost to you (details in the application on how to receive funding for travel costs) 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!

  • As part of the training, teams will observe an operating DWI Academy Court.

  • 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.
