Anyone interested in volunteering at Marjaree Mason Center in areas that interact with clients are also required to be 40-hour certified. Disclaimer: According to California Evidence Code Section §1037.1(a)(1), Domestic Violence Counselor is defined as a person who is employed by a domestic violence victim service organization, whether financially compensated or not, for the purpose of rendering advice or assistance to victims of domestic violence and who has at least 40 hours of training as specified. Therefore, if an individual has completed the 40-hour training, but is not employed by a domestic violence victim service organization then, according to code, you are not considered a Domestic Violence Counselor. By enrolling in this course, you are acknowledging: I understand the importance of attending all sessions. I will be present at all sessions unless illness or emergency should arise, in which case I will notify the facilitator as soon as possible and make up the hours at the next scheduled training. The cost of making up sessions in future training is $25 per topic. I understand that the topic of domestic violence can elicit strong and sometimes unexpected emotions, and may affect each individual differently. Therefore, I agree to do my part in creating a safe, non-judgmental environment in which each person (with backgrounds, experiences, beliefs, and values that may differ from mine) may participate in his or her own exploration and education about issues related to domestic violence. Cancellation Policy: Cancellations must be submitted in writing seven days prior to event for a refund minus a $25 administration fee. Any cancellations less than 7 days prior will not be issued a refund.
