I am pleased that Three Trusts was commissioned by the Colorado State Court Administrator's Office (SCAO) to write, with Magistrate Laurie A. Clark of the 17th Judicial District, the 40-hour curriculum that has been adopted as the mandatory training for all Child and Family Investigators. Currently, there are two more trainings scheduled in 2013. I expect more trainings will be scheduled.
Upcoming CFI trainings
The 40-hr trainings, mandated by Chief Justice Directive 04-08, updated 12/12, are scheduled as follows:
May 6-10, 2013 Ft. Collins, Larimer Co.
To register: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/May2013CFITraining
June 10-14, 2013 Brighton, Adams Co.
To register: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/June2013CFITraining
NOTE WELL: These trainings are full at this time, with a significant waitlist. However, if you are on the waitlist, the SCAO will know you want the training in the future, and you will probably be notified when they are scheduled.
