It is a prerequisite for every individual attending CSPN events, and is available immediately preceding them, or is offered as part of a one-day conference which also includes an overview of CSPN Best Practice Standards (BPS).


ITT (Investigative Team Training): This 3 day event offers intensive training for how to respond to child abuse reports as laid out in the CSPN Best Practice Standards (BPS). It is recommended an agency sends 2-4 representatives to the same ITT event. Prerequisites: The agency must be a CSPN member at the Associate or a Full level, and the representatives it sends must attend an Orientation to CSPN (see above) and commit to attending every ITT session.
