Free on-site or webinar trainings are available for elder advocates this spring. The National Elder Rights Training Project provides training on a wide range of law and aging topics to legal services providers and elder advocates nationwide. Priority for on-site training is offered to states involved in the Model Approaches to Statewide Legal Assistance Systems demonstration grants. However other organizations may also apply. Preference will be given to organizations that can commit to marketing and outreach for the training event to attract the targeted audience. The training is free and the National Consumer Law Center or another partner from the National Legal Resource Center will conduct the training. While the trainings are offered on a wide range of topics, selection of the organization is in part based on availability of trainers. Currently expert trainers are available on a wide range of consumer law topics.
The training application is available at http://www.nlrc.aoa.gov/NLRC/Training_Request/Index.aspx. You may also contact Odette Williamson at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
