Green Dot Training
Have you taken your annual Green Dot training? This is a mandated annual training to gain awareness and prevention of interpersonal violence, to include sexual assault, domestic and inter-personal violence, and suicide. You have two choices for your training. If you completed the Green Dot training last year, you only need to take the 2018 GD Refresher training. If you have never taken the training, you need to take the initial training. This year’s theme is “Lots of people X Small behaviors = Big Impact.”
Sign up for your training now at the AF Green Dot SharePoint site, or call the Violence Prevention Integrators at 480-1422.
