What training type is the best fit?

Informational Training

This training type is best for state or local government bodies who may encounter an ACP participant. This training type can also be helpful for agencies who employ protected healthcare workers or commonly work with survivors of violence. In these trainings, the Address Confidentiality Program is explained at an entry level. Then, guidance is provided for agency staff to accept and reflect the ACP substitute address in compliance with the ACP Rules and Statutes. Informational trainings may be catered to the needs of your agency, whether that includes Government Compliance, Best Practices for Private Businesses, or program information relevant to your clientele and workplace responsibilities. This can be an opportunity to learn more about the ACP before deciding which employees could benefit from Application Assistant certification.

Application Assistant Certification

Application Assistant Certification is recommended for agencies who provide direct services to survivors of violence or protected healthcare. Direct services can come in many forms and Application Assistants need not specifically be advocates. If you work as a gender affirming healthcare provider or reproductive healthcare provider, or provide referrals to such services, you can become a certified Application Assistant. Additionally, if you provide therapy, case management, advocacy, or another direct service to survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence, harassment, or stalking, you can become a certified Application Assistant. If you are uncertain whether you can become certified in your position, please contact acp@state.co.us or review the Application Assistant Corner page for more information.
