Take Note — Sept. 8, 2017

Green Dot training

Have you taken your annual Green Dot training? If not it is not too late to sign up. This annual training increases awareness and prevention of interpersonal violence, to include sexual assault, domestic and inter-personal violence, and suicide. We are providing additional training opportunities in order to spread the Green Dot creed and culture to the entire community. This year, You have two choices for your training. If you completed the Green Dot training last year you only need to take the Green Dot Refresher training (about 1 hour). If you have never taken the Green Dot training, you need to take the Green Dot Initial training (about 1.5 hours). Civilian attire is authorized. The 86th Airlift Wing Violence Prevention Integrators want all active duty Air Force members and full-time Air Force civilians and non-appropriated funds employees to get this important training completed sooner, rather than later. Sign up for your training now at the AF Green Dot SharePoint site, or call the Violence Prevention Integrators at 480-1422. No one has to do everything, but everyone has to do something.
