Regional Training

SVN offers three types of Regional Trainings:

Due to the concerns over the spread of the COVID-19 Coronavirus, the SVN Board of Directors has decided to postpone the following upcoming trainings: SVN 24 Hour Certificate Training, Scheduled for Las Vegas, NV, 360 Degree Program Management Certificate Training, Scheduled for Fairfax, VA and the SVN 24 Hour Certificate Training, Scheduled for Minneapolis, MN

This has been a difficult decision to make. However, our primary concern is always to be responsive to the needs of our members and this decision has been made with the safety of our members and trainers in mind. This decision is also consistent with the many advisories put out by our local and federal governments.

At this time, we have tentatively rescheduled our Las Vegas, SVN 24 Hour Certificate Training, for late June 2020, exact dates will be released to enrolled participants and the website updated. The other trainings have yet to be rescheduled and we plan to do so. Please be assured that registration fees already paid for these trainings, may be used for these rescheduled trainings, or be applied to any other SVN trainings offered throughout this year.

We apologize for any inconvenience they may cause, particularly those of you who have planned to join us in Las Vegas. Based on several news stories, we are hopeful that any plane and hotel reservations already made will be credited or refunded.

What exactly is a Certificate Training?

Certificate Program is a non-degree- granting structured learning program that is designed to meet specific and pre-determined learning outcomes and for which individual achievement of intended learning outcomes is measured. It is different than a standard training program that issues a certificate of attendance, the key distinction is that certificate programs use a measurement of learner achievement (test). Similar to an academic degree it does NOT speak to the ability to perform a specific job or career, but does demonstrate successful attainment of the information presented during the training.

Per Credentialing Industry practices, the organization issuing the Certificate Program (SVN) must also be the provider (SVN) of the educational program. This is an OPTIONAL Program, and specifically SVN members can elect to meet the SVN 24 hour training requirement independently of this program. It is worth noting that during the 3 year environmental survey conducted through the work of the Credentialing committee, almost half of the members responded that there were not sufficient training opportunities in their areas. This program was developed to meet the need for training for those providers who have difficulty meeting the SVN training standards, or who may want formal recognition for attaining the certificate that is issued.

Please note that while this program was designed to specifically meet the SVN standards, it may possibly meet specific State and/or government requirements in your area. Each attendee is encouraged to seek counsel to verify applicability in their area.
