Free-On Site Training Through the National Elder Rights Training Project

s falkow
Would you like to receive a FREE in-person training created for your organization's and clients' needs from experts in the field of law and aging? The National Elder Rights Training Project provides training on a wide range of law and aging-related topics to elder advocates, service providers and legal services advocates nationwide. The initiative is funded by the Administration on Aging as part of the National Legal Resource Center. Experts from the National Consumer Law Center, National Senior Citizens Law Center, ABA Commission on Law and Aging, and other organizations are available to provide in-person, on site training to your organization.

Priority for on-site training is offered to:

  • States and partnering entities involved in the Administration on Aging's Model Approaches to Statewide Legal Assistance Systems demonstration grants. This program is designed to create well integrated legal and aging service delivery systems that target scarce resources to older adults in the greatest social or economic need.
  • Aging and Disability Resource Centers (ADRC) and Area Agency on Aging (AAA) staff involved in identifying and assisting older persons facing legal challenges to their independence and financial security. 

Preference for on-site training will be given to organizations that can commit to:
  • Marketing or publicizing the training event to the audience(s) targeted for the specific training;
  • Inviting a diverse range of aging and legal professionals;
  • Securing a space for the training;
  • Registering participants;
  • Providing or arranging for the rental of audio-visual or other training equipment;
  • Collecting evaluation forms or other data; and
  • Offering CLE (if possible) for legal trainings.

If selected the National Consumer Law Center will provide:

  • One to two trainers for conference presentations, or a half day, full day, or two days of on-site training;
  • Trainer(s)' travel expenses including airfare, food, and lodging; and
  • Training materials or books, if needed. 

Before submitting an application for an on-site training, please check the National Elder Rights Training Project Webinar schedule to ensure that an online training on your topic is not already available or upcoming.

Open enrollment for applications starts Feb. 24, 2012 and will continue until training selections have been made. We encourage you to fill out the application as soon as possible as there is a limited number of trainings we will do this year under this training project. We will fill the training slots on a first come, first serve basis for eligible organizations.
